NHS CSR volunteers at the Digital Drop-in

CSR = Corporate Social Responsibility – a formal name for the kind of volunteering that was a frequent feature of the 50+ Digital project before the COVID pandemic wrecked everything.

For the previous 10 years we had been hosting a stream of enthusiastic volunteers from city firms – mostly young, always very clever – sometimes individually, sometimes in small teams – and remarkably effective.

We have been lucky this month. Every Wednesday, we have had 2 or 3 brilliant volunteers from NHS Property Services – helping older people solve a digital problem, achieve a digital ambition, or learn something new – in addition to our regular and experienced long-term team.

In the photos – Charlie, Rupert and Zhané. Missing from the photos – Calum, Leo and Ola – but only because we didn’t have a camera handy.
