Working in Kingston? So are we!

We work pan-London yet have our roots in the Royal Borough of Kingston-upon-Thames. With funding from Kingston Council we are able to offer community organisations based in the borough a unique selection of free training, advice surgeries and technical support

See our training programme or subscribe to our e-news for offers.

Partner projects. Keeping Kingston connected

We work with Kingston Voluntary Action and a range of local partners on a local social prescribing model for the borough and online basic skills training for residents. Partner projects in Kingston include health navigator training for volunteers who signpost residents to useful resources.

Our aim is to help people connect to their friends and family. And access the support they need when they need it.

One-to-one advice. Tailored for you

We will be running free weekly advice surgeries especially for charities and community organisations in Kingston upon Thames. Advice will be focused on a range of topics related to impact, hardware and software choices and raising your profile. 

Sessions will also run in the evening to suit small groups. Get in touch with Superhighways to talk about your needs.

External funding. Identifying new opportunities

We are always on the look out for funding opportunities to bring basic online skills training into our borough.

Over the last year we have been working with Kingston Churches Action on Homelessness providing  one to one sessions with their clients on just about any aspect of digital.  It was a great project and entirely led by what people wanted help with.  You can find out more on our blog following this  link to the Lifting the Lid on the Reboot Project post.

We also ran a similar project with a purely digital health context - teaching 30 residents how to use the NHS website to find information on their own health and encouraging them to sign up to digital health services. We worked with Refugee Action Kingston and Staywell Services.

An essential part of  our digital outreach  programme  in Kingston is the support we receive from the  volunteers we train as digital champions. They enable us to build the skills, motivation and confidence in our learners to take on the challenge of digital.   A huge thanks to our students from Kingston College who helped on both projects and to Matt G.
