Digital exclusion is a health inequality and is also a major contributor to loneliness and social isolation.
Covid-19 has made those who are digitally excluded even more isolated and data is already showing widening health inequality and increased levels of loneliness as a result of the pandemic.
We are working as part of a cross-system project team, to design and deliver an outreach programme for digital exclusion, particularly focused on people from BAME groups with mental ill-health and/or disability. This programme will be focused on the Spelthorne, Runnymede, and Woking area as this is an area that has been identified as having particularly high levels of need.
Tech to Community Connect is a collaborative project led by Surrey Coalition of Disabled People and Action for Carers Surrey. The service includes the provision of a device, a ‘match’ with a volunteer tech angel and digital literacy guides, the provision of a programme of virtual social and activity groups and, finally, the opportunity for people to virtually volunteer.
This role will specifically recruit, train and support community members ot become volunteer Tech Angels, to manage the live 'matches' of project participants and volunteers and to explore the other opportunities to involve volunteers in the project.
