Digital Champions Network

Digital Champions Network

Being a digital champion is a great way of making a real difference to older people.

You don’t have to be an IT whizz, you  just need a bit of spare time and enthusiasm to support others with using digital technology.

Typical tasks for a Digital Champion include:

  • Teaching someone to use Google
  • Helping someone set up an email account
  • Explaining how easy shopping and banking online can be
  • Setting someone up on Skype
  • Helping someone research their family history or other hobby online

In return for being a Digital Champion you’ll get free training and support with self-study courses and teaching resources, the chance to meet and work with other Digital Champions in your community and immense personal satisfaction that you’ve help people to get connected!
