Do you want to help disabled people improve their digital literacy? Are you confident using the latest mobile, PC and tablet technology?

Technology plays an important role in the lives of people with learning disabilities, helping them communicate, find information and explore hobbies and interests.

We deliver relaxed group sessions at our training centres in Clapham Junction and Brixton to help adults with learning disabilities improve their digital skills. We need volunteers to engage with our students in the classroom and help them build the knowledge and confidence to progress their individual learning journeys. You'll provide invaluable support to our digital skills facilitators, helping them deliver empowering and fun sessions. This is a great opportunity for someone who wants to gain experience supporting people with learning disabilities in a training environment.

About us

Share is a registered charity and a centre for training and wellbeing. We provide a range of programmes helping adults with learning disabilities, autism and other support needs become more happy, healthy and independent. Our vision is a world where disabled people are fully included in society, living the life they choose.

Time commitment

We are looking for a minimum commitment of 1 day per week - either Monday or Thursday 10am - 4pm... or more, if you have time!
What measures have you put in place to ensure volunteers’ safety during COVID-19?
We constantly monitor the covid-19 guidelines and update our policies accordingly. We encourage those who can to wear masks in our buildings, there are sanitising stations throughout our buildings, and all staff and volunteers are required to test regularly.

This organisation is one of our community partner organisations.

Like all volunteer recruiters we work with, they have signed up to our service standards, agreeing to abide by our policy on partnership working.

In addition, the team here at Students’ Union UCL Volunteering Service is here to support you throughout your volunteering journey – you can get in touch at any time with any questions, queries or problems you encounter.
