Become a Virtual Volunteer supporting the most vulnerable in society with simple online tasks that can make the world of difference and brighten their day. There are many members of the Welsh public who own digital devices but require support or guidance in how to make the most of being online. Before lockdowns and restricted travel, a family member or friend may have offered these individuals one-to-one support. Unfortunately, not everyone has this support network around them, and for those that have, access to support has been made even more difficult due to the Social Distancing and Lockdown procedures.

RCADC in conjunction with Digital Communities Wales are offering training to those who may be interested in Virtual Volunteering to support individuals on their digital journey. We are not expecting volunteers to access client’s personal information, but to support individuals with getting the best out of being online. Whether that is through apps to keep in touch or options for accessing entertainment media, your support can make a world of difference to someone’s day.
