Digital inclusion continues to be a growing area of work for Supporting Communities. Being digitally literate is no longer a luxury for an elite group, it is a must have skill for everyone in order to manage information, communicate, save money, access support and government services. It has become an essential tool for modern day citizenship and participation and no one can afford to be left behind.
Our approach to digital inclusion, like all of our work, is focused on the needs of individuals and communities. Building on our work in community development, we have advanced new models of engagement and a flexible project management style to suit all sorts of people and situations.
Working in partnership with the NI Direct Digital Inclusion Unit, our Digital Champion Initiative enhances the Go ON NI programme. We encourage groups to take a self-help approach by providing free support, advice, information and training to individuals across Northern Ireland.
