TalkTalk are working with Citizens Online to reward 12 individuals, one from each UK region, who are using digital technologies to bring about positive social change and improve local communities and the lives of local people.
Here at Community Spaces, we’ve seen some great examples of community groups using digital technologies such as blogging, Flickr and even Youtube to keep local people informed about their work and engage them in the process. Friends of Sandall Park in Doncaster, Macc Skatepark in Stockport and Friends of Abbey Gardens in West Ham, London are just a few examples of what we think are potential digital heroes.
Eleven of the Digital Heroes winners will win £5,000 to put towards enhancing their digital project, with one overall winner receiving a grand prize of £10,000. All 12 winners get free broadband from TalkTalk for 18 months.
