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

In February 2023 we launched the Discover Digital Roadshows and Workshops. Which we are offering to communities and organisations free of charge.

The Roadshows 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 are tailored training sessions 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.

Interested in booking the Roadshows or Workshops? Email us at or call on 0141 404 0231.

Grant Schemes

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. We funded nine organisations, six for the Discovery Grants and three for the Enabler Grants.

The reports for the Discover Grant organisations can be found here.

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.

You can read the insights from the 2021 grants here.

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.

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.
