Now in its third year, the Digital Skills Award has showcased innovative and inspiring organisations, ensuring digital skills are delivered to anyone, regardless of their age, disability or previous experience, including access to the internet, training and support.
This year we have four fantastic finalists in the running for the Digital Skills Award. In no particular order, we have Hands Free Computing, Cyber Champions, Gransnet.com and Apps for Good. Find out more about them here, including the hashtag you need to tweet to vote:
#T4GHandsFree use a variety of programmes, assistive software, training, apps and on-going support to help make computers accessible for everyone, regardless of their disability.
#T4GCyberChampions address the social challenge of using digital technology by supporting children and adults, and promoting online wellbeing. Through free courses, interactive workshops and mentor programmes, they deliver a key message of understanding how to use the internet safely.
Through free online guides, a public forum and video content, #T4GGransnet is showing the over 50s that the internet connects people, with a wealth of knowledge, support, advice and entertainment available for them to access.
#T4GAppsforGood is a free education programme, working to change tech education forever; to turn young tech consumers into tech creators, unlocking the confidence and talent of young people so that they are inspired to create new ideas that can change their world for good.
