Assistive Technology Volunteers

The Aspire Assistive Technology programme provides access to computers and tablets for people with a spinal cord injury whilst they are in rehabilitation in a Spinal Injury Centre.  Our Assistive Technology volunteers work with patients in the centres providing training and support as they learn how to access and use a computer following their injury. 

The training is delivered at the Spinal Injury Centres. These are located at Stanmore, Stoke Mandeville, Salisbury, Wakefield, Sheffield, Southport, Cardiff and Belfast. Volunteers will need to be able to travel to the centre and commit to at least 4 hours on one day per week (office hours only).

Vacancies currently exist at the following centres: Stoke Mandeville, Oswestry and Sheffield.  Training will be provided and travel expenses reimbursed.
