Major improvements rolling out across our telephone support 

We've listened to your feedback and understand just how important our telephone line is to receiving support from a friendly volunteer over the phone. Our telephone line had increased in demand and unfortunately we had seen periods where people were having to wait on hold until a volunteer was available again. To help keep queues down, after three minutes on hold, the system would ask you for a message for us to return the call. We apologise for the inconvenience this has caused this year. 
We have now made changes to our telephone line which you should start seeing improve the service. We have invested in a new reception team, dedicated to answering your calls and triaging them to ensure you speak with the best volunteer to support with your query. This means you will be put straight through to a friendly voice who will be able to ensure you are directed to the best support. There may be some occasions where the reception team decide it will be best to take a message from you for a volunteer to return your call - we will only do this if all our team are extremely busy and it's to ensure you aren't waiting on hold listening to the same music. 
These improvements to our telephone line mean faster answering, speaking to a human more quickly, and will allow you to receive better support from the most relevant volunteer - all from the same great charitable organisation and no change to our phone number.  

Visit us in-person at one of our hubs 

Our hubs are open weekly for drop-in digital inclusion support, as well as digital workshops being hosted at these locations. Our hubs also allow residents to collect Databank SIM cards, as well as a lounge space to have a friendly discussion with a volunteer about getting online. They are also our device donation drop-off locations. If you have any computers, laptops, or Raspberry Pis that you'd like to donate to a local charity, drop them off at your nearest hub so we can get them doing good in your local communities.
