Stay Safe Online

The Service:

For those aged over 60, or 18+ with a registered disability, one of our trained Stay Safe Online Volunteers can visit you in the comfort of your home and provide the following:

People can refer themselves for a visit, but the team will also be taking referrals from the police for those who have already encountered problems with online crime.

Feedback on the service from one of our kind volunteer training test subjects:

“Thank you for inviting me along to the Volunteers’ Training Day.
I found it very thought provoking, and realised that there is
a genuine need for this service in the community. This applies particularly
to the elderly, who, like me, are not conversant with computers,
and could easily be hoodwinked by some of these clever scams.”
Jill Harvey

Advisors are also available to give talks at community events.
