With 12% of Worcestershire needing help to use a computer we’d get nowhere without the hard work of the Fortis Living Digital Champions.
From April 18 we recruited 42 new Digital Champion volunteers who helped deliver an incredible 929 IT sessions in Malvern and Worcester, volunteering for 859 hours.
Overall, since we started the project in late 2015 we have recruited 98 Fortis Living Digital Champions who have delivered 3020 one to one IT sessions helping people get online safely.
Many of these Digital Champions are jobseekers and I’m proud to say that out of those 98 Digital Champions 56 are now in paid employment.
Just goes to shows – by helping others you really can help yourself!
