AbilityNet exists to change the lives of disabled people by helping them to use digital technology at work, at home or in education.

Our volunteers all have relevant IT skills and may be able to help with computer systems, laptops, tablets and even some smartphones. 

They can't provide free hardware or software but they will try to help you get the most from your computer - and if they can't help you we can offer independent advice about your best options.

Please call us on 0800 269 545, let us know what help you need and we'll try and find a suitable volunteer. You can also contact us using our Home Visits Request form on our website.
