Digital Inclusion Programme

Digital inclusion might be a term that goes over some heads but it’s at the heart of many social issues affecting the disadvantaged.

As more and more parts of our lives move online, having access to and the skills to use a smartphone, a computer and the internet can be the difference between affording daily living costs and being trapped in poverty.

Being digitally excluded has been linked to poorer health and lower life expectancy, World Health Organisation figures have shown and around 10 million people in the UK struggle to navigate the digital landscape that dictates much of everyday life, according to Lloyds Bank research. Here’s what you need to know.

What is digital inclusion?

Digital inclusion means making sure everyone can benefit from the internet and technology, regardless of their background or income.

Campaigners fighting against the digital exclusion which keeps many locked out of essential services say people can lack the skills and confidence to manage their lives online, or do not have the equipment and internet connection to do so.

Why Digital Inclusion Matters
Digital technologies have transformed the way we live, work, and communicate. They have the power to improve people's lives by providing access to new opportunities, information, and services. However, not everyone has equal access to digital technologies, and this can create a digital divide that reinforces existing inequalities.

By promoting digital inclusion, we can ensure that everyone has the opportunity to benefit from the advantages that digital technologies offer. Digital inclusion can help to reduce social isolation, improve education and job prospects, and enhance health and wellbeing.

At Impact Training, we believe that digital inclusion is a vital part of creating a more equitable and inclusive society. We are committed to empowering people to develop the skills and confidence they need to succeed in today's digital world.
