Break down the digital divide and help others

by AbilityNet

Technology can help people gain independence, for example by online shopping; prevent isolation by connecting to family and friends, or simply have fun with games, TV, radio and other entertainment services. Our volunteers help people get going online, and offer support if something goes wrong.

Organisation description

AbilityNet supports people of any age, living with any disability or impairment, to use technology to achieve their goals at home, at work and in education. We do this by providing specialist advice services, free information resources and by helping to build a more accessible digital world.
