Here at ACE IT our Moose in the Hoose project requires volunteers to join our existing teams to help older people living in care homes.
We help residents access the benefits of computer technology by using Skype, emails, and making life story books using various iPad apps. There is an important social aspect to the project and volunteers need to genuinely enjoy the company of older people as well as having basic computer skills. After training we feel volunteers will get the most out of the experience if they are able to stay for a year if possible.
Our sessions are currently delivered at five care homes around Edinburgh. As a volunteer, you would be based at one site of your choosing where you would attend one session per week. Sessions typically last two hours plus around twenty minutes for setting up and tidying up afterwards.
