We have a couple of community-based volunteering opportunities:
• Tuesdays at Heston Library 10am to 12
• A weekday, 2-hour timeslot at the Hare & Hounds in Osterley - fireside location. It will be a regular day and time, but there is some flexibility on when this is.
The volunteering role is about enabling people to deal with immediate difficulties with getting online, accessing Apps, building user confidence and signposting to the various longer-term or more in-depth sources of help available.
We will also accept donations of unused, out of date tech that we can upgrade and recycle. It is NOT a general laptop repair service although we will carry out simple fixes if we have the resources.
Training and guidance will be provided from Our Barn project leaders, our tech partner Blue Summit, and Hounslow Council. For those more technically-minded (or wanting to learn more) we also have an ongoing volunteering opportunity on Thursdays at our offices inside the QWest building on the A4/Great West Road (on the H91 bus route, with other routes nearby). This is where we will be stripping down and rebuilding the donated laptops.
We would like a commitment of 2 hours a week between 10am and 4pm. Our technicians will be on site to guide the work.
