Go Digital (360G-SCVO-a110N00000TNRWIQA5)
Delivered over a 12 month period, ‘Go Digital’ will focus on upskilling key staff and volunteers within the organisation to develop and deliver digital skills training and support to isolated older people who we work with through our football memories and kinship care programmes. With funding to cover dedicated staff costs, associated volunteer costs and required digital kit, our 12 month project will be embedded into existing activity and will add significant capacity to our small organisation. We will undertake an essential skills audit across our football memories participants and Kinship Carer support group in order to understand the level of knowledge and skill. This will help us to develop a tailored training / support programme as well as giving us a baseline to monitor the project’s impact. We will use information from the Essential Digital Skills Framework to assess level of understanding / competence across communicating, handling information and content, transacting, problem solving, being safe/legal online. We anticipate a range of ability from foundation to basic level. Based on findings, our Project Officer (PO) and Volunteer Development Officer (VDO) will use online resources and support from the One Digital Team to develop a tailored programme, targeting key areas of need and detailing a timetable of engaging and relevant inputs (at least 2 x 1hr sessions per month over the 12mth project period). The PO and VDO will train existing volunteers who are interested in supporting the project to help deliver the sessions. We will purchase a set of 5 ipads and 5 google chrome laptops to ensure we have the necessary kit to allow participants to explore and learn. We will also put our Digital Skills Team (PO, VDO, Volunteers) forward to attend SCVO’s Digital Champions training to help support and add value to our project.
