Our mission is very much staying the same, to make sure everyone has access to digital making activities to obtain essential skills in a growing and developing world. But, we want people to know that we’re going to be here for York, North Yorkshire and England this year, next year, and the year after that. Our mission is both to provide activities to everyone and provide e-safety support, but it’s also to survive during these difficult times.
The Keeping Digital Foundation is the leading organisation for providing digital making activities in York and North Yorkshire. We were set up with the aim of supporting everyone with digital making activities and allowing everyone to develop digital making skills.
Our mission is to provide digital making activities to everyone through events and workshops, as well as supporting young people and parents on how to keep safe online.
Although we recognise that our services are mainly popular with young people, our services are available to anyone who needs it and we are working on expanding our work to support every single person in York, North Yorkshire and for our e-safety program… England.
For the e-safety support we set up ‘Keeping You E-Safe’, which is there to provide information, advice and a list of our support groups. We’re also working on creating brand new educational resources to update the e-safety learning that is taught in York’s, North Yorkshire’s and England’s many schools.
We pride ourselves on our professional, responsive and innovative approach. Although we are relatively new, only being set up in 2016, our team have worked hard to provide a much needed service that has been finalists in the ‘Minster FM Listener Choice Awards’ and nominated for many other awards.
