Learning from Lockdown: 12 Steps to Eliminate Digital Exclusion
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, the scale of digital exclusion in the UK has been exposed and exacerbated beyond previous understanding. While new initiatives have been rapidly and successfully delivered, substantially accelerating progress and ensuring thousands of individuals now have appropriate digital access, there is still much more to be done to ensure no one in the UK is left digitally excluded.
In response to this challenge, Carnegie UK Trust has published its 'Learning from Lockdown: 12 Steps to Eliminate Digital Exclusion' report which sets out a series of 12 recommendations calling for ambitious action from policy makers, practitioners, academics and industry to tackle digital exclusion. The recommendations build on the work of the Trust on digital inclusion over the past decade, and particularly draw on learning and reflections from the pandemic and lockdown period.
