Digital Friends

Do you want to join our volunteer team helping older people to use digital technology?

You don’t need to be a digital expert to volunteer, all training is provided

Digital technology has transformed our lives and is now central to things such as communications, health, work, public services, shopping and leisure. It is more important than ever that everyone has opportunities to develop basic digital skills and confidence.

BJF is recruiting volunteer Digital Friends who are patient and willing to help people  to learn what technology is, how it can be used to stay in touch with family and friends and how it can open up a new world of connections. 

Personal experience of using a digital device such as a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or computer will be helpful, but Digital Friends don’t need to be technical experts.

Help us make sure that nobody gets left behind in the digital age

" We need more volunteer Digital Friends! I help older people so they can connect to their friends and family.The most rewarding thing about being a Digital Friend is seeing people smile when they realise they are able to do things they thought were impossible to do. Also you are able to make many new friends that will appreciate what you are doing for them and have a great time."
