Inspiring positive change through digital skills


About Digital Unite

Digital Unite, the people behind the Digital Champions Network, has been delivering digital skills support since 1996. We were founded by Emma Weston who was awarded an OBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List in 2012 for services to digital inclusion
An independent and agile organisation, Digital Unite is the only organisation that focuses exclusively on vocational training and support for Digital Champions.

Digital participation is no longer desirable, it is critical…

…not just for people themselves but for government and wider society. Despite this it is estimated that over 10 million people have little or no basic digital skills and those who remain offline are getting harder to reach.

Developing the capacity of people and organisations through the creation of Digital Champions is now commonly regarded as a key and sustainable way to tackle the size and scale of the issue; helping people to harness their own digital skills, enthusiasm and empathy so they can help bring offliners online.

About our Digital Champions Network

Our Digital Champions Network was launched in 2013. We’ve poured our 21 years’ experience of digital skills delivery into an interactive destination that turns staff and volunteers into great Digital Champions.

Since its inception we’ve trained thousands of Digital Champions in a variety of settings from local councils and housing associations to care providers, charities and community organisations.

With our essential tools and accessible support our unique Network is helping Digital Champions wherever they are based promote confident and continued use of the internet across society.

We look forward to welcoming you in.
