Peer Volunteers played an invaluable role within the ONSIDE project by supporting participants in 1-2-1 settings to further develop their digital skills and understanding of how to create community connections online.
Our volunteers supported the digital training team by offering additional 1-2-1 ‘Peer learning’ sessions once a week. The aim of the peer learning sessions was to offer further training in an area the participant felt they needed additional support with.
Peer Volunteers provided small group or one-to-one support to help people learn how to use their Lenovo Tablets, get online safely, and find new ways of connecting with their communities.
