Digital Champion Training

The Gathering 2018

Become a Digital Champion with our Training!

We’ve created hundreds of Digital Champions across Scotland’s third sector who are making a real difference, helping to tackle social exclusion by supporting people in our communities to develop essential digital skills.

We’ve provided Digital Champion training to a range of organisations who have gone on to support their service users, including: 

Camphill Blair Drummond

Through Digital Champion led group activities, Camphill Blair Drummond have increased the confidence, self-esteem and digital skills of their service users.

“I’ve been learning new things to do on the computer….I feel good helping other students and residents.” – Camphill BD service user supported by one of their Digital Champions 

Lightburn Elderly Association Project (LEAP)

Sessions run by their Digital Champion have supported older people from the local area to improve their digital skills, confidence and staying safe and secure online.

“It’s been a godsend to help me try and learn the basics…Everyone I work with needs this to apply for benefits, so I need to try and keep up with them. My son stays in Australia and it’s great to be able to keep in touch.” – Jean, a LEAP service user supported by their Digital Champion
