I have become AbilityNet’s county co-ordinator for Wiltshire  which means that I will be  work ing with a team of volunteers who help people use their computers. In particular, we work with individuals who may need help due to their disability and additional needs. This is about hardware and access. I have known of the work of AbilityNet for many years and as a local WiltsOnline Digital Champion it seems a natural direction to take to increase my experience in the voluntary sector.

I also aim to do some paid work with them in the form of assessment as  a freelance consultant which would increase skills in the area of DSA and broader disabilities than my specialism of learning disabilities. This would mean more face to face assessment and problem solving.

I am seeing my first client in my voluntary role next week!
