Digital Voice for Communities C.I.C.

About us: 

Digital Voice is a social enterprise, a not-for-profit organisation which uses multimedia experiences to provide a voice and an opportunity for personal development for community groups - particularly those who face disadvantage. 

Since the organisation was founded in October 2007, more than 5000 people have taken part in our projects.

We offer digital media and internet training to provide an opportunity for skills development and expression. Benefits for individuals include increased motivation, raised aspiration, and the development of transferable and vocational skills. Participants develop practical skills which enhance their employability including general IT skills, prioritizing, team-working and web skills.

The wider social benefits of our work include improved community interaction and cohesion through the breaking down of barriers to digital inclusion. Groups participate in a media production such as video, animation, digital photography, VJ performance, audio storytelling and new media mapping work. These workshops are a powerful tool for projects seeking to encourage personal development, enterprise, creativity and also engagement with politics and democracy, consultation and exploring issues. Examples of projects are detailed on our website: www.digitalvoice.org.uk. We also offer accreditation for some of the training we offer.
