DigiDundee wins Digital Leaders 100 Award
DigiDundee, the DVVA Digital Health Hubs community project, winner of 10th Digital Leaders 100 Awards in their category!
Last week at the 10th Digital Leaders 100 Awards, finalists for all 10 categories gathered high above London at the Shard to meet this year’s winners. The Awards celebrate and recognise the individuals and organisations from the public, private and non-profit sectors who are demonstrating a pioneering and sustainable approach to digital transformation in the UK.
Despite the rail strike, members of the DL100 list joined from across the UK together with the alumni members of the DL100 Club, sponsors and special guests to celebrate 10 years of the awards.
Dundee Volunteer and Voluntary Action are proudly announcing that DigiDundee won the Craig MacDonald Memorial Prize, which was open to grassroots organisations working in their local communities to help close the digital divide. DigiDundee was one of the 8 shortlisted projects, alongside Age UK Hammersmith and Fulham Digital Inclusion, ClearCommunityWeb, Manchester Digital Collective, Reconnect by People Know How, Teakisi, theunconnected.org and TripleTapTech.
DigiDundee was chosen by public vote and walked away with the £5,000 Prize which will support the development and rolling out of the project, making technology and health care solutions more accessible to those who need it most.
DigiDundee is part of the Dundee Volunteer and Voluntary Action’s Technology Enabled Care Communications Development Programme, led by Dr Fiona Williams. Starting with one Hub in Brooksbank Community Centre with initial funding from NHS Communities Innovation Fund, DigiDundee is expanding its geographical remit across other locations to help members of the public with Near Me video consultations and provide access to and support with digital health and social care resources.
