GTDT Wins Digital Champions Awards

This Tuesday saw the Digital Champion Awards ceremony which took place at the new Museum of Liverpool on the Waterfront. GTDT has been working hard to help local people get online and we were delighted that this was recognised at the awards which were handed out by Martha Lane Fox (the UK's Digital Champion) and Cllr Nick Small.

GTDT won two of the seven award categories:
  • Tara Jussa won the Community Award for her work across the community to empower people to use the internet
  • Pearl Mann won the Disability Award for her work with disabled people to empower them to use the internet

GTDT also had nominations in a number of other categories:
  • GTDT was nominated as an Organisation working to reduce the digital divide by helping people to get online
  • Nicola Myszkowska was nominated for the Community Award
  • Jenny Robinson and John Monks were both nominated for the Disability Award
  • Hailey Woods was nominated for her work with Older People
  • Tony Ashbrooke was nominated for his work within the Workplace
The Go ON it's Liverpool campaign has been incredibly successful at helping thousands of people across Liverpool to get online, gaining access to information, services and jobs. We are pleased that the work of our UKonline Centre on Lodge Lane has been recognised in this way.
