During the development of the Dunedin Digital Strategy there was a clear message from the Dunedin public that community-specific projects needed to be led by the community. The Digital Office was set up to lead and support Digital Strategy projects and ensure that the proposed benefits are achieved.
The Digital Office is a not-for-profit organisation reliant on local businesses and the community for support and funding.
Its mission is to work closely with community groups and businesses to understand digital needs, support digital projects, advocate digital initiatives, and ensure the successful outcomes of Digital Strategy projects.
When it comes to digital connectivity, there’s a lot of jargon that can be confusing, and it can be difficult to know where to start. To help, the Digital Office has launched the Digital Ambassadors scheme—whereby a team of technology experts volunteer their time to answer your digital questions. For example, you may be curious about options for connecting to the internet, online services, how to create a successful online presence, or simply how to avoid computer viruses.
