There is a lot of great work going on by organisations from across the public, private and voluntary sectors to help people and organisations go online and take advantage of the internet.
Our Digital Inclusion Strategy sets out how we will work to reduce the number of people without basic digital skills and capabilities by a quarter by 2016. The cornerstone of our strategy is working closely with our partners to increase digital inclusion and we now have over 50 signatories to our UK Digital Inclusion Charter. It is our partnership work across all sectors that allows us to bring together and scale up all of our efforts - no single organisation can tackle this alone.
Our charter outlines 10 commitments that we, alongside our partners will take to reduce digital exclusion. That’s why we are inviting our charter signatories to share their work on our blog to showcase some of the activities being undertaken to support the charter.
We want to hear more about the work our partners are doing specifically to tackle digital inclusion and further our strategy actions. We hope you’ll be interested in hearing about their activities, what successes they have had and what they have learned.
We will also continue to blog about how the team is progressing on making the strategy a reality. So, keep checking back here or sign up for alerts to find out more about all the work the team and our partners are doing to help people get online!
If you are part of an organisation that is interested in signing up to the charter, getting further involved in digital inclusion or if you have any other tips or suggestions, contact the digital inclusion team at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
