“Without a clear and co-ordinated national strategy to drive digital inclusion, which considers the needs of people and their support networks, the UK cannot hope to deliver a long-term robust recovery plan from the Coronavirus pandemic and help to lift thousands of families out of poverty”
Lord Jim Knight, Co Chair of the Digital Poverty Alliance Board
“Today, so many opportunities and essential services such as benefits, banking, finance, employment opportunities and learning resources are only available to those with a reliable internet connection, suitable technology and adequate tech skills. Closing the digital divide and provide better resources and opportunities for everyone is essential to tackling poverty in the UK and closing the digital divide. As the Digital Poverty Alliance, we are committed to convening the leading voices in Government, academia and business to drive and act upon a national digital poverty strategy that will make a real difference to the lives of millions.”
Paul Finnis, CEO, Digital Poverty Alliance
“There are lots of fantastic initiatives across the UK addressing Digital Poverty and an important opportunity to work with organisations still unaware of the positive impact they could have on people’s lives. Following consultation, we understand we must support and enable this ecosystem to tackle all the determinants of Digital Poverty. Our DPA community has a unique opportunity to work together, share evidence of what works and, crucially, to collaborate and join up solutions so people in need can access what they need at the right time and place for their lives.”
Baroness Ruby McGregor Smith CBE, Co-Chair of the Digital Poverty Alliance Board
