Why we do what we do

Our ambition is to help people improve their digital skills; particularly those who are vulnerable, digitally excluded, or at risk of being left behind.

We’re committed to helping local communities by making sure digital is accessible to all. We want to help as many people as possible and we’re really passionate about helping those who need it most.

We’ll work together with you to tailor the support we provide and make sure it’s going make a difference - not just today but in years to come too.

Meet the team

Amy

Amy is one of the founding Digital Eagles and has been with us since 2013. She knew back then just how important digital was going to be and became a Digital Eagle because she wanted to make a difference to people’s lives.

Amy looks after our community partnerships and is always on the hunt for new community groups and organisations to help with their digital skills. She’s particularly passionate about helping the most vulnerable and digitally excluded and came up with the idea for Digital Champions to do just that.

Kirsty

Kirsty works with community groups to help teach their colleagues and members digital skills and feels it’s a great privilege to be able to do a job that allows her to meet inspiring people from across the UK.

Kirsty enjoys talking to people and learning about what they do to support their communities just as much as she enjoys helping them build their digital skills.

Ange

Our Code Playground enthusiast and presenter extraordinaire, Ange is passionate about helping people build the skills they need for the future and helping them stay safe in the digital world.

Ange delivers digital upskill sessions to adults to help them become digitally savvy, and teaches school children how to code, through our curriculum aligned Code Playground sessions.

Matt

Matt has always had a keen interest in the digital landscape and the initiatives Barclays drive to close the digital skills gap in the UK. 

Matt is really passionate about environmental issues and is actively trying to reduce his own individual carbon footprint such as adopting a plant based diet. 

What people say about working with us

The delivery is exceptional and engaging. The fact that digital is changing day by day minute by minute it’s really reassuring having up to date information especially around Scams and staying safe online.
