Newham Council Volunteering
We are a Council led programme with great volunteering opportunities on offer.  Working in collaboration with the Students' Union UCL Volunteering Service we're promoting specific volunteering opportunities directly supported by us within the Borough of Newham. 

The Digital Champion Volunteer will work closely with the library team to support digital skills development for individuals and groups within the local community. The volunteer will help to deliver 1-1 support, group sessions and/or one-off events to improve digital literacy and help fellow residents get connected.


- Provide digital skills support to individuals through one-to-one sessions, group sessions, and one-off events
- Assist individuals in developing basic digital skills such as using email, accessing the internet, and using social media
- Support individuals in using digital devices such as laptops, smartphones, and tablets
- Help individuals to access online services and resources such as job search engines, council and healthcare services, and online learning platforms
- Support digital skills workshops and training sessions for community groups, school groups and those attending one-off events
- Ensure that individuals are aware of online safety and security best practices
- Support library staff to record and report on the impact of the support provided to individuals
- Attend relevant training sessions
