IT Volunteer Awards - winners announced
The Technology 4 Good Awards have been announced!
iT4Communities is pleased to congratulate the IT Volunteer Award winner Colin Crook who worked with Digital Unite to bring the right IT solution to support training for first time internet users. Colin is a service leader responsible for running Silver Surfer IT taster sessions in sheltered accommodation for elderly people across the UK. He has been working mainly with people with sight impairments using tools such as Dolphin Guide, Jaws, Thunder, Webbie and various speech recognition programs. What impressed judges about this project was the scale of support that Colin offered.
All of the entries represented huge professionalism and commitment by dedicated IT volunteers and the decision was very hard. Everyone on the shortlist should feel very proud of the work they do and enjoy the celebration of this important support to the not-for-profit sector.
