Volunteers needed for digital switchover in October

Local people are being invited to volunteer in a project aimed at raising awareness of the October digital switchover.

Television is going digital in Northern Ireland and soon the traditional analog signal, which has supplied decades of entertainment, will be switched

Training and support will be provided as part of a team dedicated to ensuring that no one gets left behind when switchover happens.

Volunteer training is taking place on Thursday, September 6 at 34 Shaftesbury Square, Belfast, from 10am to 2pm.

No previous experience is required and volunteers don’t need to be technically-minded, just friendly, willing and able to talk to people where they live.

Volunteer expenses will be reimbursed.
