Digital Me - Giving children in care a voice

I'd like to talk about a project I have been involved in. I'm currently working for a non-profit Community Interest Company in the North of England called "Digital Voice". 

Digital Voice has reached the finals of the national Tech4Good Awards with Digital Me, just months after winning a Royal Television Society award for technical innovation.

The Tech4Good Awards, whose sponsors include BT and Comic Relief, will announce the winners on 17 July.

There’s also a chance to vote for DV (and all finalists) for a special People’s Award! Supporters can tweet #T4GDigitalVoice or use the form on Tech4Good Awards' website.

Our founder director Julie Nicholson: “Our digital community team is thrilled at this news! The DigitalMe approach gives a digital voice to many often-excluded groups, from looked-after children to vulnerable adults and people who are often afraid to express their views.”

The DigitalMe methodology, which uses tablets to inspire vulnerable people to use digital communication to have a voice and improve services, was commissioned by Gateshead Council’s Children’s Rights Service and funded by the Ragdoll Foundation.

It's a close race. We have a good chance of winning this, which would mean a lot to us and the children involved in the project. If you have a minute to spare, please vote for us Digital Voice.
