A new accredited online course and dozens of new resources have been launched by Digital Unite to train staff as Workplace Digital Champions and improve digital skills across an organisation.
Home Group, one of the biggest housing associations in the UK, has joined Digital Unite’s Digital Champions Network as part of the national Lottery funded One Digital programme.
Home Group will be using the Network to train and support residents and staff as Champions who can go on to help others with essential digital skills.
John Thompson was named Best Volunteer Digital Champion in our recent Achievement Awards 2019 and is a Digital Champion with Phoenix Community Housing.
Digital Unite is teaming up with the UK’s leading learning disability charity, Mencap, on a new initiative that explores how becoming a Digital Champion can open up wider employment opportunities for people with a learning disability.
Because we find the best conversations about digital skills are had in small informal groups we’re running two of our popular roundtables in September. Each one is delivered in partnership with a subject matter expert and is aimed at housing providers, local authorities and charities. Choose from being a digital first organisation or building digital skills in the workplace, or both!
Naturally spaces are limited so register today.

Libraries already play a pivotal role in their communities, but they can also be instrumental in supporting digital inclusion for local people.
