Fight the Divide – 100% Digital Leeds, Multiple Dates

//Fight the Divide – 100% Digital Leeds, Multiple Dates

If you’re an organisation working on the front line, you’ve seen the impact of digital exclusion up close. There are too many that are struggling, and the gap in digital skills is getting wider.

We know that helping people to become digitally included will bring wider social benefits. Improved digital skills help people be better informed, pay less for things, be more employable, feel more independent, be less isolated, and have better health outcomes.

100% Digital Leeds wants everyone to understand how digital would benefit them, be able to gain the skills they need to make the most of digital, and get connected. We can’t do this alone: we need the help of third sector organisations help to fight the digital divide.

This is a call-to-arms for everyone working with Leeds residents – join the 100% Digital Leeds movement.

Following the success of our autumn network launch events, this time we’ll workshop practical ideas on how we close the digital divide and help the most excluded in Leeds live better, easier, longer lives. We hope that attendees will leave with workable project outlines which can be piloted with our support ready for the spring network meetings when we will focus on funding.

We’re looking for organisations who understand the challenges local residents face; those that are working to break down barriers and make sure nobody is left behind.

Come together to share problems, share ideas, and work together towards a 100% Digital Leeds.

Spaces are limited so book now to avoid disappointment. Join the movement to fight the divide.
