Digital Champions started as a pilot in May 2018. Our young people are trained up to assist members of the community with any technology problems they may have. The public bring their laptops, tablets and mobile phones into the sessions and receive advice and guidance with any problems. Also, the digital champions have access to our laptops to help people with internet issues ranging from internet safety, settings and emails to skype and social media.
The sessions run on the first and third Wednesday of every month from 3.30 – 4.30pm at The Old Printworks, Parc-y-shwt, Fishguard and anyone is welcome.
POINT Digital Champions won Community Group of the Year at the 2019 Fishguard and Goodwick Community Awards.
We are currently in the process of seeking funding to be able to train up a bigger cohort of young people of different ages ranges and to be able to deliver more sessions and in other areas of the Fishguard and Goodwick district.
Your help will allow us to continue to do the wonderful work that our qualified youth workers have been doing for all these years.
The young volunteers gain Food Hygiene and Barista certificates and experience for use on their CV’s which will then help them on the road towards gaining employment.
Helping young people to increase their employability, life skills and sense of belonging within the community.
