Langstane Housing Association is now part of the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) ‘Social Housing Digital Champions Network’ and as part of this network sits within the ‘North Cohort’.  The cohort includes the following landlords: Aberdeenshire Council, Osprey Housing, Castlehill HA, Lochaber HA, Orkney HA, Albyn HA and Pentland HA.

The Association has seven staff volunteers who are enthusiastic to work with tenants and customers to help them become less socially excluded, save time, money and possibly become more employable by helping them become more aware of what can be gained by getting online.  The digital age is here and we want to help people to move with it and not get left behind.

The Digital Champions met on 25 October with lots of discussion, positive ideas and suggestions and attended a formal training session, led by a member of SCVO, on 5 November. 

One of the champions has already made an appointment with a tenant to help them with their digital skills.
