Incredibly, nearly one in six adults in Wales are still not online. They’re missing out on opportunities to save money, look for work, find information, keep in touch with family, learn new skills and access important services. Many of them are already coping with issues such as isolation, poverty or unemployment – issues which are made worse by not being online.
We deliver the Welsh Government project Digital Communities Wales which provides support to organisations working with people who are not online.
We support organisations that are working with digitally excluded groups, particularly older people, people with disabilities, unemployed people, social housing tenants and families in poverty. We can:
- Train your frontline staff so they can confidently show people how to use technology.
- Support you to set up digital inclusion volunteering initiatives and recruit digital inclusion volunteers.
- Advise you on embedding digital inclusion into your day-to-day activities.
- Support you in developing new projects or activities to help you include elements of digital inclusion in your ideas.
- Build local partnerships amongst organisations which want to share ideas and co-ordinate activities with others in their area.
- Help you develop strategies and policies for digital inclusion.
