Ability Net technology support
The charity AbilityNet has almost 300 disclosure checked volunteers nationally. In addition to the information on their website with suggestions about the use of technology for individuals having various usability challenges, and their step by step guides help with the setup of these devices. They offer support and advice not only with PCs but also tablets, mobile phones, Smart devices and even TVs. Their support could include setup, installing software and hardware, troubleshooting or providing basic training on how to use systems and how to do so safely. These services are FREE to the elderly and those disabled at any age. Under normal conditions they would visit individuals in their own homes however right now we are using telephone, video calls, email / snail-mail and remote connection of devices to support clients.
