The Carnegie UK Trust has launched a seven-step guide to digital inclusion aimed at local authorities, housing providers and other public- and voluntary-sector organisations, providing an easy-to-use toolkit for them to help get people online.
The report showcases six different approaches used to encourage people online in Liverpool, Glasgow, Leeds, Sunderland, Wiltshire and Fife. These include training volunteer digital champions to help share skills and knowledge, making affordable broadband available in social housing, and a bus kitted out with the latest technology to take digital to communities and demonstrate how it can be used.
The report can be downloaded from www.carnegieuktrust.org.uk/publications. Housing Technology’s ‘Digital by Default’ report can still be downloaded free of charge from housingtechdev.wpengine.com.
