Did you know that online households can save £560 a year by paying for bills and doing their shopping online? This is just one of the benefits of being online - people can also save time, stay in touch, find jobs and explore interests.
There are a staggering 7.8 million adults in the UK who’ve never used the Internet, and 90% of these know someone who does. If we all took the time to show someone the benefits of being online, and to pass our IT skills on, we’d be very close to enabling everyone in the UK to enjoy life online. That’s why we’re mobilising a network of Digital Champions in trade unions to inspire, encourage and support people to use the Internet.
What do Digital Champions do?
- Support people who don’t know about the benefits of the Internet to give it a try
- Point people to where they can access free Internet training, or help them get started themselves
- Help people to get set up with IT, including telling them about accessibility features
- Donate spare IT equipment
