Have had cancer, which means I can't go out to work.  However, I like writing and would like to set up a website for other cancer patients, with hints and tips on dealing with problems such as NHS bureaucracy!
Does anyone know how I can contact an IT trainer who will do home visits for a fee and uses 'normal' language?

    Dear Veritie

    My name is Ian Jones and I work Scope as a Information and Advice Worker and responsible for responding to posts that people make.

    As a Disabled person myself I have learnt to think outside of the box, if you are looking to help you write a web page, have you thought of contacting the head of Information Technology  at  your local college.

    They may know of students who are doing courses around writing a Web page or doing a course on computers,

    The student may welcome the opportunity as part of their course supporting someone to write a web page. (they may even do it free of charge)

    If you feel comfortable in doing something like this then I would drop an email to your local college to see what response you get.

    I hope this helps
