  • What is the Digital Champions Project? Whether it’s getting online and setting up a device or more advanced questions on specific queries, we can help! We also provide some of the latest devices for people who would like to try before they buy. All of our sessions are held in an informal, relaxed environment and are always at the pace of the learner; we don't teach, we guide. Why is Digital Technology important?
