Age UK Leeds is working in partnership with Age UK Calderdale and Kirklees to deliver One Digital. This is a national lottery funded project which uses Digital Champions to support older people to gain confidence and skills in using the internet. This service is free and support is delivered on a one to one basis either in community or residential settings by trained volunteer Digital Champions.
