Do you enjoy using the internet? Do you have some spare time? You could be a digital champion!
We’re always looking for people who can share their passion for technology and the internet. And there are always people who need your help – perhaps with learning to create an email address, shop online, use social media, or organise photos.
You don’t need to be an expert. Full training and support is available.
How to be a digital champion
If you’re interested and would like to find out more, try Learn My Way’s how to be a digital champion online course. It’s free to register and quick to complete.
The course will introduce you to the skills and qualities you’ll need to be a digital champion. It gives you lots of tips on how to help others begin their online journey.
When you’ve done that, you can join the growing band of volunteers helping friends, neighbours and colleagues at home and work.
The Online Centres Network includes many organisations working to tackle digital exclusion by helping people gain the skills and confidence to access digital technology.
Search their map to find a local centre that can put you in contact with people who could benefit from your skills and experience.
Alternatively, you could consider joining the group of digital champions who help our older residents.
60+ Getting Online project
We want to ensure our older residents benefit from being online.
Every week, our dedicated team of digital champions run sessions in independent-living schemes. They help reconnect families through social media, share other important online skills.
More trained volunteers will mean we can offer more opportunities.
