what is digital poverty
Technology and the world of digital services has advanced at such a rapid rate that many of us take for granted the ease and convenience with which it allows us to go about our daily lives. However millions of people and families across the UK are getting left behind.

"11.3million adults lack essential digital skills"* for life and work. The impact of this means tasks such as booking a virtual GP appointment, online shopping or managing online banking are simply not an option.
The ever increasing gap in digital literacy across the UK only works to increase the inequality we see in our society and puts so many at an unfair disadvantage.
Join us in trying to be part of the solution.
