Description

Whitehill & Bordon Digital Inclusion and Skills Network

We are delighted to invite you to our network meeting and workshop on Tuesday 10th September 13:00-16:00

  • Are you aware of the digital help out there in your area?

  • How is your organisation encouraging customers to use your online services?

  • Are your customers struggling to get online, or not motivated by digital at all?

  • How will Universal Credit and other 'Digital By Default' services affect your custimers’ ability to effectively claim benefits or interact online?

  • Are your clients struggling to manage their finances and debts? Can online services and tools help?

East Hampshire District Council's Whitehill & Bordon team have commissioned Citizens Online to research digital inclusion in the area. We know that there are organisations already working to tackle digital exclusion and many more who might like to get involved in digital skills provision. Our aim is to join up activity, share information and resources, encourage collaboration.

We want to establish a Digital Inclusion Network in your area with a joint action plan to help tackle some of the biggest problems being faced by citizens and services alike.

At the meeting we would like to;

  1. Share information from our research findings
