Digital Pathfinders: Launching our collaboration to break down barriers in digital


Together with a group of leading North East sector organisations, we're excited to launch the £2m Digital Pathfinders programme to help businesses, charities, and organisations in the North of Tyne break down barriers to using digital. 

Through the free programme, we'll be delivering digital transformation support to more than 500 businesses and organisations across Northumberland, North Tyneside and Newcastle upon Tyne over the next three years. It's a partnership between VONNE and Digital Catapult North East Tees Valley, Generator and Steam Digital – made possible by funding from the North of Tyne Combined Authority and Digital Catapult. 

Who’s it for? 

We'll support charities, community groups and social enterprises to find their digital route to success and collaborate with the region’s talented tech sector. Whether you need support to deliver your services digitally and inclusively, to understand and use your data to make decisions for your organisation, or to ensure you know how to get the best out of working with digital partners, we can help. Our support, through a range of workshops, events and one to one sessions, will be delivered by a team of tech and innovation experts with experience working in the VCSE sector, so understand the challenges you face.

Our official launch

To celebrate the new collaboration, a virtual launch will take place on June 15th, featuring a panel of business and community leaders who will share insights from their own digital transformation journeys. If you’re interested in learning more about using digital in your organisation, or would like to learn more about the Digital Pathfinders programme, get yourself signed up
