Digital Leaders 100 Awards: Digital Skills or Inclusion Initiative of the Year – 2019

Published by Sarah Cant on

One Digital is proud to have been selected for this year’s Digital Leaders 100 (DL100) awards shortlist in the Digital Skills or Inclusion Initiative of the Year category, for our work in 2018.
Our expert, UK-wide partnership helps people learn essential digital skills through the support of local Digital Champions. In 2018 our partners worked with over 1,320 UK organisations, recruited over 1,500 Digital Champions and helped over 16,500 learners benefit from being online. We also held events and developed resources to share what works with other digital inclusion organisations.

Thanks to our partners’ hard work, our network of Digital Champions now extends across Great Britain – passing on digital skills in a personalised, informal and effective way to help address loneliness, social isolation and financial exclusion and tackle inequalities in employment, health and wellbeing. We have been working with a range of delivery partners, including charities, local authorities, libraries and organisations with a focus on housing, employment, older people and social care. We help organisations manage their digital evolution, ensuring the digital age doesn’t leave their people or beneficiaries behind, and improve their own digital capabilities.

We’ve also been a learning partnership. We launched our Community of Practice at the start of 2018 and through it have shared innovation, expertise, knowledge and experience. We’ve developed and tested unique Digital Champion models that can be used by organisations developing digital skills activities. And last year we ran two national learning events, attended by over 80 organisations, where everyone shared their digital inclusion expertise and built on what works.

If you would like to help us celebrate all of these great achievements, please vote for us to win a DL100 award.
