Digital Information Assistants
Not all clients need advice – some just need help to find the right information. Others need support to use digital services. Our digital and information assistants provide exactly that, helping clients to use things like tablets, kiosks, online PCs, benefits calculators and direct-dial phones. In doing so, they help build the skills and confidence of clients to find information online and use digital services like vehicle tax renewal, finding a rented property and claiming benefits.
