Carers Trust South East Wales is looking for volunteers to help us run a new scheme aimed at helping unpaid carers in Gwent to get online and make the most of the web.

The scheme is linked to our Gwent Carers Hub, but will be largely focused around delivering support to carers remotely.

Volunteers will help carers with things like:

  • Video conferencing tools (such as Zoom)
  • Online messaging tools like Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp
  • Smartspeakers
  • Online shopping
  • Online benefits

All volunteers will receive an induction into CTSEW, full training will be provided by Digital Communities Wales and volunteers will be supported by Gwent Association of Voluntary Organisations (GAVO). Hours are flexible and there are not any specific requirements around qualifications or skills other than general knowledge of online communications and technology and a commitment to support carers. Volunteers must be aged 18+.

Volunteering is a great way to get into a new areas of work and a rewarding way to help others in the local community and it could provide the perfect springboard for paid work in the sector.

If you are interested in joining us as a digital volunteer please complete the form below and we’ll be in touch. We look forward to hearing from you!
