Our story 

In 1996, armed with just a bike, a computer and lots of neighbours and friends who needed help with a new thing called the internet,  our founder Emma Weston OBE set up Digital Unite.

Today, we are an award-winning social enterprise, working with hundreds of organisations and supporting thousands of people to achieve digital inclusion and enable change.

We want a society where digital technologies and the skills to use them support inclusion and participation for everyone. And we know that the most effective and sustainable way to realise that is through empowering people to help other people with digital skills. That's why we’re the only organisation that focuses exclusively on high quality vocational training and support for Digital Champions.

We are honoured to work with partners from across all sectors and owe a huge thanks to the thousands of Digital Champions who have joined us on our journey. We look forward to joining you on yours.
