Community and voluntary organisations in Northern Ireland who are providing digital skills training can now register for free support from over 700 trained Digital Champions.
An exciting new initiative from Tinder Foundation and Lloyds Banking Group (LBG) will see thousands of bank colleagues trained and given the time to volunteer in grassroots communities across the UK, to support people with basic digital skills.
These volunteers could help your learners, clients, customers or service users with a range of activities, from setting up and sending emails, to using their smartphone or tablet.
How you can get involved:
- Step 1: Register the details of the support you’d like on the Tinder website.
- Step 2: Tinder Foundation will share your details with Lloyds Banking Group.
- Step 3: From mid-April, LBG Digital Champions will begin to get in touch when they have volunteers available in your area.
It’s that simple! And if you register now, you could benefit from an internal, volunteering campaign from Lloyds Banking Group which will see their colleagues strongly encouraged to get out and volunteer during the week between 16th and 20th May.
Tinder Foundation Chief Executive, Helen Milner OBE says: “We believe that corporate partners can play a huge part in tackling digital exclusion. Lloyds Banking Group has committed to recruiting 20,000 colleagues as Digital Champions and we’re really proud they’re working with Tinder Foundation, helping those that need it most.”
