One Digital / National Lottery Fund
Since 2015, Citizens Online has been involved in the One Digital programme to improve basic digital skills across the UK. Other delivery partners are Age UK, Clarion Housing Group, Digital Unite, and SCVO (with AbilityNet also taking part in Phase 1 of the project). The programme has funded our Switch approach to tacking digital exclusion across the UK.
The One Digital programme is delivered by a partnership comprising Age UK, Clarion Housing Group, Digital Unite, and SCVO (with AbilityNet also taking part in Phase 1 of the project). The programme is ongoing, and Citizens Online is implementing our “Switch” model in 20 local authority areas — with Big Lottery funding matched by contributions from local government — from 2018–20.
Citizens Online won the 2015 Digital Leaders Award for “Best Digital Inclusion Product or Service” for our Switch suite of products.
We have won other awards, such as:
- Amaze 2015 for our accessibility campaign Fix the Web
- Spring Online 2014 for our project in Nairn
- Business in the Community: Responsible Business Award 2013 – our partner BT won this for the Gwynedd Get IT Together project that we delivered
