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

Our CEO, Emma Weston OBE, set up Digital Unite in 1996. She had a compuEmma  Westonter, a dial-up connection and lots of neighbours and friends who needed help with a new thing called "the internet". Today, there are usually between 10-12 of us at Digital Unite, depending on how many projects we have running. We don't have an office, but all work remotely across the country, from the North West to the South East.  

We work with partners from across all sectors, public and private, local and national. And our Networks train and support volunteers and Digital Champions to help everyone get to grips with digital technology. 

We want a society where everyone has the digital skills to participate fully, as the world becomes increasingly "digital first" or even "digital only".

We believe Digital Champions are the most effective way to grow digital inclusion, empowering people to help others.
