I went to a very basic IT class which comprises of around 15 people of the older generation some are in their 80s and 90s I went with a lady I know who already attended the group she said it's more of a social event than learning computers so when I got there I parked up my mobility scooter in the corner and sat down on a normal chair in the middle of three tables during the first day 3 people asked me to help them one said she needed to set the time and date on her tablet another said she was trying to access something else and the other lady had a similar problem to the first I helped all 3 and it made me feel like I had a purpose so the second time I went it was pretty much the same and at the end I spoke to the lady who was running the group and asked if I could be official volunteer she look straight at me and said no you cannot be a volunteer because you are disabled I was shocked and horrified by her statement I asked her where did that policy come from she said the volunteer centre so I went straight down to my local volunteer centre where I am registered already as a volunteer they took my details and said they would get back to me. I didn't think that people could say something like that as it is simply sitting next to someone and showing them how to work an iPad laptop or tablet
