Digital Heroes

For many children and young people, using technology comes easily. We’re training them to become Digital Heroes so that with their help, we can change people’s lives.

Make a difference

Digital Communities Wales – Digital Confidence, Health and Well-being brings older and younger people together to use and enjoy technology.

Where do Digital Heroes come from?

  • Schools (age 7 – Welsh Bacc)
  • Colleges and universities
  • Scouts/Guides
  • Police cadets
  • and more

How does it work?

  1. DCW trains the Heroes so they can help others use the internet safely.
  2. Heroes are linked up with a community organisation.
  3. The Heroes support people from that organisation to get online.

 Everyone benefits

  • Digital Heroes develop confidence and communication skills
  • People supported have fun and learn to use the internet
  • Both parties develop relationships within their local community
