Digital exclusion contributes to loneliness, social isolation and health inequality. People who are disabled, living with a long term health condition, living in deprived areas, people with a caring responsibility and people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) groups are at higher risk of experiencing both loneliness and digital exlcusion.
Health, social care and voluntary sector partners in Surrey Downs and East Surrey are determined to reduce loneliness in our community, and are using digital inclusion to help to achieve this. The Tech to Community Connect service provides access to devices, a 'match' with one of our brilliant volunteer Tech Angels, access to virtual social and activity groups, and opportunities to become a virtual volunteer. The service has been piloted over the last 9 months and has had a real impact.
This is an exciting opportunity to join the innovative team at Surrey Coalition of Disabled People and really make a big difference in your community. As you will see from the job description, we are not looking for a tech expert; your people, communication and organisational skills are what we are after (though if you do happen to be a tech expert too then that won't hurt!)
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
