Do you want to change somebody's life? If you think you have the skills to support digitally excluded people to learn basics of using computers and the internet, we'd like to recruit you as a Digital Champion. Digital exclusion is a serious issue that restricts a person's ability to stay in touch with friends and family, find work and the best deals for goods and services, and remain an active member of their community. What are Digital Champions? Digital Champions teach people the skills and confidence to use computers and the internet by themselves, and become digitally included. Heeley Trust is a community organisation that deploys volunteer Digital Champions in venues across Sheffield, changing lives and strengthening communities. You don’t need to be a computer expert, or have any qualifications in IT, to be a Digital Champion. You need to be confident with computers, but much more important are patience, reliability and excellent communication skills. Working as a Digital Champion is fun and rewarding, a good way to meet people, and looks great on your CV. Heeley Trust supports their Digital Champions with training and is happy to provide references and letters of commendation to volunteers seeking employment.
