Become a digital volunteer

As a volunteer digital champion you'll be helping people in Barnsley to improve their digital skills. 

It's a varied role that can range from showing someone how to get online using their smartphone or tablet, to setting up an email account and using council services online. Our volunteers help residents to build their confidence using the internet and experience for themselves the benefits it can bring to their lives. 

If you’ve got some spare time, have the skills and want to find out more about how you can support people to get online then we’d like to hear from you!

As a volunteer you'll get the opportunity to work with our digital champions on projects across the borough - supporting learners on our free online basics courses or at our one-to-one digital sessions.

It can be a really rewarding experience to be a part of; some of the feedback we've received from residents shows this:

"Very informative for all ages and improves your online skills a lot."

“Its given me more confidence when using the internet, it was brilliant!"

“Absolutely amazing - I loved every minute.”
