RAD Digital Champions

Be a Digital Champion and make a real difference to others in Derbyshire.  

RAD need digital volunteers:

  • Do you enjoy helping others and would like to help change lives?
  • Are you reasonably confident with using computers, tablets and the internet?
  • Would you like to develop your own digital skills?
  • Do you have some time available to help others?

Volunteering as a Cyber Buddy is a great way of making a real difference to other people, helping them gain confidence using digital technology. You don’t have to be an IT whizz, you just need a bit of spare time and enthusiasm to support others with using digital technology.

Typical tasks for a ‘Cyber Buddy’ include: 

  • Teaching someone to use Google
  • How to find Covid-19 information and support
  • Helping someone set up an email account
  • Explaining how easy shopping and banking online can be
  • Setting someone up on Skype or other video call platform
  • Helping someone research their family history or other hobby online
  • Accessing Government services online
  • Showing someone how to stream music, TV or films
  • Finding their way around YouTube
  • Setting someone up on Facebook
