Our Digital Champions Network turns people into Digital Champions by building their digital skills and confidence. Through its structured training and support it empowers and inspires staff and volunteers to pass on their online skills to help others.
Its unique flexibility means the Network can cater for your organisation in a very bespoke way through branding, messages, resources and data capture.
As seen with the current Lottery funded One Digital partnership the Network can also provide a core foundation for sustainable and collaborative digital skills programmes.
