What does it take to be Digital Champion?
You don’t have to be a technical whizz. You do need to be patient, understanding and a great communicator.
Digital Champions volunteer their time to help others to improve their digital skills and benefit from using the internet safely. Every learner is different, but common tasks you’d be helping people with include:
- Finding their way around a device
- Setting up an email account
- Searching for information on the internet
- Using communication tools like Zoom and Facetime
- Signposting to hobbies
We’re currently supporting people who are digitally excluded remotely, over the phone. So you can volunteer from the comfort of your own home and help people all over the UK.
We’ll support and train you with the guidance you need to help people remotely, so that you develop your own confidence and skills too. Our Digital Champion Coordinators will be there for you to check in with, and help to resolve any questions you have.
The great thing about volunteering is that you can help out at a time that suits you, and even a short amount of time each week can make a life-changing difference to someone!
