Opportunity to join the social housing digital champion network

SCVO are kicking off a new digital project with opportunities for housing organisations across Scotland

Posted In

People living in social housing are 20% less likely to have the digital skills they need than people who rent privately.

SCVO are kicking off a new project, with opportunities for housing organisations across Scotland to help change this statistic by becoming part of a social housing digital champion network.

SCVO believe one of the most effective ways of helping people to improve their digital skills is through regular support from someone trusted – a digital champion.

The project will offer comprehensive training and support, fully funded for up to 30 housing organisations.  

This will include:

  • work to identify a digital motivator within the organisation;  
  • a two-day residential bootcamp to inspire and support the motivator; 
  • short and informal surgeries with digital champions from across the staff team;
  • support to record and monitor digital inclusion activity; 
  • access to credit rated qualifications for involved staff to aid career progress.

If you are interested in finding out more or registering an interest get in touch with  @digiscot or email digital@scvo.org.uk, or give Beth a ring on 07581 623 028.
