The Covid-19 crisis has presented many challenges for small businesses and charities, particularly in building digital capability. In response, Digital Boost has been created to provide much-needed digital support for small businesses and charities. The platform will host a community of digital experts, who will offer one-to-one digital support to small businesses and charities free of charge to help them improve their digital capability to grow and prosper.
The platform is owned by Founders4Schools and was built in partnership with BCG Digital Ventures, and aims to close the gap between digitally high and low-tech organisations.
Digital Boost aims to support the six million British small businesses and charities impacted by COVID-19, on their digitalisation journey by providing a community of digital expert volunteers to support charities and small businesses through 1:1 “Boost Calls”, interactive “Boost Workshops” and “Boost Skills” resources.
DCMS is supporting Digital Boost as part of our ongoing work to support small businesses and charities during this challenging time. For more information on how to gain access to this support or to volunteer as a digital expert, please click here.
