The new digital inclusion campaign launches creating 250 ‘digital champions’ to ensure vulnerable people aren’t left behind in digital age.
A new digital inclusion initiative has recently launched in Scotland to give homeless people the computer skills “other take for granted”.
Two of Scotland’s leading homelessness charities Streetwork and Simon Community Scotland unveiled Get Digital after receiving a £250,000 grant from the Scottish government to create ‘digital champions’.
This will see 250 workers from the two charities receive training to provide support to people experiencing homelessness in learning digital skills and engaging with the digital world.
