Digital Inclusion

Digital Inclusion

Support for people to get the help they need to access important digital services.

Our Digital Champions are peer volunteers who help people access online services and support those who struggle to use digital tools. Sessions are carried out either face-to-face in a participants home, or at an agreed public or community venue.

We also work with community venues to set up Digital Hubs where the local community can access wifi and computers and arrange drop-ins sessions.
