Digital Champion - Making it Work

Can anyone offer any advice on how to make the concept of Digital Champions a cross-business success? I have plenty of volunteers but this is on an ad-hoc basis and the amount of time they can devote is limited by the responsibilities of the 'day-job'. Has anyone had similar experience and could offer advice as to what systems/processes might work?See More

Thoughts from Housemark East PIC event

 

Discussion seemed to show up a fair level of interest but also concerns about resourcing digital inclusion (as well as some questions about whether HAs should be prioritising it over other areas).

Everything you want to know about £10/mth BT Basic broadband but were afraid to ask

3. Has to be applied for using…

Online discount voucher scheme

Posted by Ellie Turner on March 3, 2015 at 15:01 3 Comments

Hello. I recall a while ago hearing about a housing association that signed up to an online shopping scheme to encourage residents to go online but cannot remember the details. 

Does anyone know of a scheme like this anywhere?

Thank you
