Volunteers' Week runs from 1-7 June, and not only is it an ideal week to take the plunge and join AbilityNet as a tech volunteer, but it's also a great excuse to showcase and celebrate the tireless and valuable work of our network of 350+ amazing volunteers across the UK. 

Jordan Rosser, smiling outside a house, wearing AbilityNet lanyard"I've grown up with technology and sometimes you forget that there's people that haven't, especially the older generation. Something that might seem trivial to yourself can make a huge difference to somebody who's never used a computer. And it really does. You can see it in their eyes, when they've accomplished things themselves - that smile and that energy you get from them is really rewarding, and I absolutely love it." - Jordan Rosser, AbilityNet Tech Volunteer.

What is Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)?

CSR is a means for businesses to contribute to or engage in activities of a charitable or ethically oriented nature, that support the communities and environment in which they operate. It can simply be a day where employees can get out of their usual work environment and bond as a team whilst volunteering and giving back to their communities.
