Hang on, what's a pledge?

Hello, welcome to Inspire! This is a programme in which volunteers pledge their time to support friends, family, colleagues, or even their community, with digital skills learning. It's really simple:

  1. you learn about digital skills support and how to do it
  2. you make a pledge to help someone
  3. you do it!

If your volunteer scheme is part of the programme already and you want to get started, go here to register.

If your volunteer scheme isn't already part of Inspire did you know you can join it? It's open to workplaces, organisations, clubs, education and more. To talk about how to get involved, just give us a shout.
