Published: Feb 11th, 2016 |
A new, collaborative programme to train hundreds of Digital Champions to help thousands of people across the UK to get online has been officially launched today (11 February 2016).
Age UK, the Scottish Council of Voluntary Organisations, Citizens Online and Digital Unite with its partners Affinity Sutton and AbilityNet have joined forces to develop the One Digital programme which will recruit, train and support 1,400 Digital Champions nationwide.
Funded with £2 million from the Big Lottery Fund, the programme will help around 9,500 people develop basic digital skills and reach a cross-sector of society including those with disability and accessibility needs, young adults looking for work, the over 65s, and third sector organisations and their beneficiaries.
For One Digital, Citizens Online will work with local partnerships in four target areas – Plymouth, The Scottish Highlands, Brighton & Hove and Gwynedd, on an innovative model called Digital Resilience. This model seeks to find holistic and sustainable approaches to digital champions by working in deep partnership and aligning to other outcomes such as employability and digital by default. Citizens Online will support 4000 end learners through 120 Digital Champions.
