Our Motivation and Mission

The impact of digital childhood is profound. While the benefits are many, and well documented, so are the challenges. Sedentary screen-time, exposure to age-inappropriate content, cyberbullying, trolling and grooming – these are common, almost everyday experiences, for many vulnerable children in the online space.

Every child has right to learn the skills to enter digital-life as well-protected and as safe as possible. And that’s the DiGii Social mission. We’re empowering children in their formative pre-teen years how to look after themselves and others online. It’s a big mission – but one so vital that lives are depending on it.

We invite you to join us and to be a force for change, empowerment and digital-education of all our young people because they, and we, deserve nothing less.

Claire Orange

Director & Co-Founder

Hi, I’m Claire and I’m so pleased that you’re here, finding out more about digital-life protection for children. As a therapist of 27 years and a mum of 4 young men, I have seen firsthand the devastation caused by poor digital choices, too much screen-time, cyberbullying, trolling and grooming of young people online. I am driven to be part of the solution with our incredible innovation, DiGii Social, that’s all-locations-accessible, fun and contemporary digital-life education for pre-teen children.

Improving the wellbeing of children and their families is my life’s purpose. I appear weekly as Channel 9’s resident wellbeing expert and regularly appear on screens and radios across Australia. I am a proud Ambassador for R U OK? and the Valuing Children Initiative.

Doug Orange

Technical Lead & Co-Founder

Hi, I’m Doug. As the Technical Lead, I provide technical leadership and decision making for the DiGii Social software platform and work closely with the development team.

I have spent 27 years working in Information Technology in a number of roles across industries nationally and internationally. My career has covered many aspects of IT service provision including software development, solution architecture, mobile application development and deployment and cloud solution architecture.

As Claire and raise our 4 sons, we have come to understand just how much they know – and just how little we know as parents raising digital natives – despite our backgrounds. We’re dedicated to combining our unique skillsets to help every child, parent and teacher be ready and prepared for digital life.

Timothy Orange

Creative Lead

Timothy is a talented graphic designer. He has worked on a range of designs for many corporates and enjoys the challenge of communicating their unique message through his design work.

As a millennial, he gets the joys and challenges of online life – but then, he’s grown up as a Digital Native and he sees online life as an extension of real life. While he has experienced the joy of connecting with friends and family all over the world online – he also knows the perils because they play out in his social groups often.

Oversharing, placing a lot of importance on likes and shares, comparing life’s successes to others and having all of that stored as a permanent record – this is the world he’s grown up in and he’s committed to helping young people have a smoother and more informed journey into their online life rather than the trial and error approach of him and many of his peers.
