Langstane Housing Association joins ‘Social Housing Digital Champions Network’
Langstane Housing Association is now part of the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) ‘Social Housing Digital Champions Network’.
Joining the ‘North Cohort’, Langstane now sits alongside Aberdeenshire Council, Osprey Housing, Castlehill HA, Lochaber HA, Orkney HA, Albyn Housing Society 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.
