Greater Manchester Digital Champion Network

Closes 31 Jan 2025

Opened 27 Nov 2023


Across Greater Manchester, there is a bold ambition to ensure every resident has the basic digital skills literacy to access the online world confidently and safely. Our regional commitment is based on the belief that all residents should have equality of opportunity and accessible support to get online, should they want to, and that community volunteers and front-line staff can be empowered to upskill others.

The Greater Manchester Digital Champions network was born out of the emerging and widening divides faced by people that have basic digital skills to fully participate in life and activities and the impact that a lack of skills has on individuals, families and the workforce.

Greater Manchester aims to bring together volunteers from private sector, community organisations and public sector to lend their time and skills to make meaningful and long-term change to improve the skills of communities, community organisations, libraries, schools and priority sectors across the region.

What is the purpose of the network?

Greater Manchester’s Digital Champion Network seeks to galvanise industry, communities, local authorities and public sector volunteers to support digital skills and literacy for individuals and community-focussed organisations across the region. The network is an opportunity to share best practice, discuss learnings and develop a network of skilled support across every borough in the region.
