Since the arrival of the Covid-19 Pandemic, Bristol After Stroke has had to adapt the way we support people in Bristol and South Gloucestershire with life after Stroke. We are having to deliver some of our courses via Video Conferencing specifically ‘Zoom’ as well as our monthly ‘Stroke Café’s and some of our stroke support groups. Some of our services users may not have used this technology before, or have limited experience of using it but, want to experience the benefits of peer support or the courses that Bristol After Stroke are offering which is where the role of Video Conferencing Support Volunteer comes in.

About the role:

  • To offer technical support to people over the phone (in the first instance) to get them either set up on ‘Zoom’ (or other video conferencing platforms platforms) or confident using it.
  • Following initial telephone support, you will provide support through practice video conferencing sessions to help clients to become confident using this form of technology, this may be during the same session or on a mutually agreed date.
  • You will need to be clear, encouraging and patient when explaining how to use the video conferencing platform, as some of our service users may never have used this technology before.
