This maybe be via an iPad using Zoom or Teams or via telephone.
We require 10 volunteers to assist carers on a 1-1 basis using Ipads and to help them to feel comfortable using the technology and to build their confidence to engage with social media. They will need to undertake tech mate training to support the role and project.
