Digital Leaders Week in Salford

Digital Leaders week has just passed and we are, once again, proud to have been able to represent Salford highlighting the digital support that is available across the city and the transformations that have occurred throughout Salford Council. 

We've had a very busy year at Salford Council and we've been eager to share our progress with the public. Salford hosted a number of events over this week contributing to Digital Leaders Week.

Salford have held numerous events over the week, across all the different gateways. These events included support for anyone struggling to use their device and needing extra help learning the basics, support using different social media platforms, support using Salford Councils online forms and even how to save money by being online. We held demonstrations on how to use the Digital Everyone and BetterOff websites to show how to become better off in Salford.

1,237 people were supported with our digital services via the Gateways and Hub over Digital Leaders week. 
We also had 230 new users and 650 hits to our Digital Everyone website!
