One Digital - Delivering sustainable digital skills support

Join the One Digital partners to explore together how we can work more effectively to support those facing digital and social exclusion. One Digital is an innovative Lottery-funded partnership working across the UK with Digital Champions to improve the digital skills of those who can benefit most.

The five diverse and distinct partners (Age UK, Citizens Online, Clarion Futures, Digital Unite and Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations) have already successfully reached 11,000 people through the recruitment and support of over 1,100 Digital Champions. They are now building on the success and learnings gained to reach out to a further 40,000 people through 4,000 trained Digital Champions during the next three years.

The event will include:

- Keynote speakers from the Big Lottery Fund, Department for Digital, Culture Media & Sport and Carnegie UK plus an opportunity to learn more about the One Digital partnership

- Interactive workshops that will explore good practice in working with Digital Champions - volunteers and staff

- Insight and information exchange on why we need to invest in developing basic digital skills and how to target and evaluate digital inclusion activity.

- Networking opportunities to find out more about how to get involved!

Whether you are involved in supporting people into work or running programmes to reduce social isolation, poverty and health inequality this is a great opportunity to learn about new and proven approaches to delivering digital skills support sustainably and at scale.
