Support others in your community by applying to become a Digital Champion.
There has never been a greater need for communities to pull together. Everyone in your neighbourhood needs to feel safe and supported, whilst also maintaining good health and wellbeing where possible.
The aim of the Digital Champion role is to unlock the creativity and compassion within your community. We know there are many vulnerable people in our communities who may be affected by COVID-19, not just in terms of getting ill but in terms of being unable to access services and their support network.
As a Digital Champion, you can help in three ways:
- Act as a key point of contact for people in your community needing technical help and support.
- Reach out to members (registered users) on this platform to help them craft their profiles and activities.
- Reach out to people in your community who are not online and manage accounts on their behalf.
Used well, this online platform can facilitate the exchange of offers and requests between people in your community, based on the individual skills people have to offer or the specific problems they need to be solved.
What happens once you become a Digital Champion?
Once you have been approved as a Digital Champion, we will award you a 'Digital Champion' badge to help others find and contact you on this platform.
This is an open brief really. We envisage you might want to see if any members need help using this platform, be active on team collaboration spaces and generally escalate any issues where necessary to the core team. Our team (below) will be on hand to help you make decisions, answer questions and stay safe when interacting with or acting on behalf of others. In general, this platform becomes better when activities and member profiles are fully crafted.
This community platform has been designed to help people connect with their neighbours, create teams and offer or request help. Digital Champions, like Street Coordinators, are instrumental in helping to connect people and strengthen communities. So from all of us at Our Monmouthshire, thank you so much for applying.
