Digital Wellbeing Project

In partnership with Tameside and Glossop CCG

Improving digital skills in our local community with the help of
volunteer Digital Champions and partner organisations

The need

  • In today’s society, digital exclusion can be seen as a form of inequality. There is close correlation between digital exclusion and poorer health outcomes including a lower life expectancy.
  • In an increasingly digital world, people who are excluded are subject to health and social disadvantages, such as less access to education and employment, increased isolation, poor housing and a lack of voice and visibility in the modern world.
  • This is even more amplified given the wide range of health and social transactions moving online during the COVID 19 pandemic.

Core aims

  • Increase awareness and education of how being online can improve quality of life
  • Provide appropriate devices, such as a smartphone, tablet or laptop
  • Digital Skills training via network of volunteer Digital Champions
  • Build confidence by improving knowledge of online safety

Access

Those we support are referred to the Project via partner organisations and include:

  • Low income families
  • Those with a disability
  • Those experiencing isolation
  • Those affected by services moving online due to Covid
  • People who have characteristics that are protected under the Equality Act 2010
