Free IT support for disabled people
IT Services and Support for Charities and Disabled People
Reliable access to computers and the internet can change the lives of disabled people. Some people need specialist equipment but many use standard computer equipment, or new technology such as tablets and mobile phones. Some need help to choose the right equipment, others want to know more about the settings that are built into their computers. That's why AbilityNet offers free services to people of any age and with any disability - to help you get the most from computers and the internet:
Free helpline: 0800 269 545
Call our friendly team for any advice about computers and disability. If we don't know the answer we usually know someone who does. It's a free service for disabled people and the families, friends and carers who support them.
This website includes a library of factsheets that provides expert advice for people who may need special hardware or software.
Free Home Visits
AbilityNet's ITCanHelp service has a network of disclosure checked volunteers across the UK who offer free computer assistance to disabled people in their own homes. Our friendly, trustworthy volunteers can help in all sorts of ways, including:
- diagnose and fix most computer related problems;
- install and set up hardware and software,
- help with internet, email and accessibility settings.
So get in touch to let us know what you need and we will find out if we have a volunteer in your local area who can help you. ITCanHelp was an independent charity that became part of AbilityNet in 2011. You can read more about the history of ITCanHelp here.
We are always happy to explain what we do and and answer any of your questions. If you want to know more about what we offer please get in touch.
