Housing Association has become the latest member of Digital Unite’s Digital Champions Network.

Membership of the Network will help Wandle to train and support a team of volunteers, drawn from residents, the local community and staff, who can go on to effectively help other residents to use computers and the internet confidently.

Digital Unite’s Digital Champions Network is a flexible online platform that provides Digital Champion training and a support community for people who go through that training. It currently has over 900 Digital Champions from across 24 members including housing providers, local authorities and national and regional organisations.

The Network includes structured and self-study e-learning courses on how to help and inspire new learners to use the internet and peer-to-peer support through a friendly, moderated forum. The courses are also linked to the national Open Badge scheme for professional verification and access to 44 downloadable resources and 400 online guides provides the essential teaching toolkit. Critically all of the Digital Champion activity on the ground can be tracked and evaluated.
