Community.

“I am…delighted to accept the position as Chair of the Digital Poverty Alliance, a newly formed organisation committed to making sure that families don’t have to suffer the injustice of being excluded from digital life.

Our vision is to enable a world that enables everyone to have an equal + sufficient opportunity for the life-changing benefits that digital brings.

Over the coming months, we are creating a local + global community of organisations collaborating + uniting under a common cause. We’ll start in the UK, but quickly engage with global partners that share our values.”
