Digital Champions are a group of friendly and patient volunteers who are good at explaining computers, without using jargon. We have an enthusiasm for all things digital and look forward to the chance to show you how it works. 

We offer digital support for a wide range of issues, no problem is too small.

We can help you to:

  • set up and using devices including mobile phones, tablets and computers
  • get online and show you how to do home shopping
  • access digital NHS services 
  • set up Skype or Zoom to keep in contact with family or friends
