    Are you excluding your older volunteers by not offering a varied recruitment option? Age UK analysis reveals that almost 6 million people (5,800,000) aged 65+ are either unable to use the internet safely and successfully or aren't online at all. 

    The number of older people online has increased substantially over recent years, but there is still a sizeable minority who are not online. In fact, a total of 2.7 million over-65s in the UK do not use the internet at all.
