Age UK Digital Champion
A Digital Champion is someone who is trained and supported to inspire others to get online and can spend time showing them how.
They provide services ranging from 1:1 support in older people’s homes and IT drop-in sessions through to larger-scale community events – simple things that can make a big difference to people who can’t or don’t use the internet.
Digital Champions come from a range of different backgrounds and have varying levels of digital experience themselves, from IT professionals to people who are ‘newly converted’ to digital technology and want to share their enthusiasm. They may be staff and volunteers from local Age UKs, employees at local businesses or local community organisations, or other older people themselves.
There is a £20 charge for this service.
