You can help Abilitynet help disabled people
Did you know that there are 11 million disabled people in the UK, at least 4 million of whom have never been online? AbilityNet is the only charity in the UK that works with people with all disabilities and of all ages, helping them to use computers and the internet to improve their lives at home, at work and in education.
Full access to computers and the internet can be a real lifeline for people with disabilities, particularly those with severe reading, writing or communication difficulties. Equipped with appropriate hardware and software adaptations, many previously impossible tasks such as recording and producing written information, pursuing a course of study, enjoying a new pastime or simply banking and shopping on line, can become a reality.
Your support enables us to enhance the quality of life of thousands of people every year helping them become less isolated, more independent and explore new horizons in education, work and leisure.
How do we help disabled people?
- Via our comprehensive freephone and online information and advice service
- Face-to-face, through our IT Can Help volunteering programme visiting disabled individuals in their own homes
- Indirectly, by supporting charities UK-wide with expert IT volunteer consultancy through our IT4Communities scheme
