Today, 11.3 million adults in the UK still lack the essential digital skills necessary for life and work. And in just ten years, almost 7 million adults in the UK – 12% of the adult population - will be left behind due to digital exclusion.
With more and more services moving to digital platforms to save money, the digital literacy needed to use these services is not keeping pace. Those without digital skills are likely to be the most vulnerable and excluded.
This is why we have joined the UK Online Networks campaign #BridgingTheDigitalDivide. By working together, we can make the UK the first 100% digitally included nation globally.
