Welcome to Digital Champions!

Improving People’ Lives Through Digital

 

Our volunteer digital champions program improves people’s lives by developing their confidence and skills with using digital devices so they can benefit from the internet and access online services safely.

Research shows that digitally excluded people, particularly limited users of the internet, are;  

4 x more likely from low income households

8 x more likely to be over 65

1.5 x more likely from BAME groups

Developed in Partnership with Hall Green NNS, the service recruits and trains volunteer digital champions in the  Hall Green Constituency to support residents in developing their digital skills.

Residents are supported by digital champions as well as being signposted to online courses to further develop their skills. Support is focused on helping people;:

  • to get online to access essential services
  • with limited internet experience and who want to keep in contact with friends as well as get access to online shopping
  • who need help with online tasks such as banking, food shopping, making GP appointments and  staying in touch with friends and family.
