Digital Champions

Digital Champions help us to reach the digitally excluded in their communities by advocating the benefits of digital, and signposting people to free training and support available across the city. Some Digital Champions might support people to access training too.

Whatever being a Digital Champion means to you, we need your help to build capacity for sustainable digital inclusion.

What you need to know:

We need inspirational people, not experts.

Digital Champions inspire others, improve people’s confidence and help raise awareness of the online world. It’s not about being a computer expert, it’s about being supportive, encouraging and patient.

If you’re active in your local community – through your paid work, as a volunteer, or as a resident – and you understand the importance of everyone having the opportunity to be online, you’d make a perfect Digital Champion.

Training and support for you.

We can help you develop the confidence and knowledge to be able to support your local community to go online.

If you’re interested in becoming a Digital Champion our Digital Inclusion Coordinators can deliver training for you and your staff or volunteers over Zoom or your preferred platform, or face to face where social distancing guidelines allow.

Our Digital Inclusion Coordinators can offer group workshops for organisations keen for their staff and volunteers to become Digital Champions and help their service users make the most of life online.

Get your pin badge and certificate.

Everyone who completes Digital Champions training will receive a certificate and exclusive 100% Digital Leeds pin badge, recognising their achievement and role.
