Working together to help people understand and navigate digital health, care and wellbeing tools and services.
Discover Digital is a project to raise awareness of digital tools which promote health and wellbeing. There are many tools available nowadays. Some can help us look after ourselves better, look after someone else or access the NHS more easily.
Discover Digital Roadshows and Workshops
The Roadshows will bring free and simple digital tools and resources to community events. For example, self management apps and simple guides on digital health and wellbeing.
The Workshops will be tailored training on digital health and social care for community and third sector organisations. This is a great way for organisations to build skills and confidence in digital health.
In 2022 we launched the Discover Digital Participation and Inclusion Grants. These Grants aim to continue engagement work carried out in 2021 and to support organisations to tackle access barriers to digital health and social care.
Applications closed in September and we have announced the nine successful applicants. We are looking forward to working with these organisations over the next six and 18 months.
In 2021 we funded seven organisations to engage with seldom heard communities. We wanted to understand people’s needs with regards to digital health and care skills and hear what improvements could be made.

The Discover Digital Guide
The Discover Digital Guide is an online resource and introduction to digital health. It covers digital self management, technology enabled care and digital services in the NHS. It also includes resources where you can get recommendations for tools and services.
Interested in further learning?
We have a SSSC Open Badge where those working in social care can receive recognition for reading the Guide.
We have also published an Open Learn Create Course based on the Guide.
