Time: 1.30-3.30pm

We run one to one IT lessons for older people in Coventry to help them remain independent and connected with the community, teaching a mixture of abilities and devices from mobile phones to tablets and laptops.

We’re looking for volunteers to support sessions at Earlsdon Park Village from 1.30-3.30 pm on Wednesday 19 June, Wednesday 17 July and Wednesday 14 August.

No previous experience is required; as long as you’re comfortable with using basic technology, all you need is patience! Volunteers will travel together and transport is provided from campus.
