  • Digital Inclusion
    Article: Mar 6, 2018

    Digital inclusion is about having the access, skills and motivation to confidently go online to access the opportunities of the internet.

    The benefits of developing digital skills cannot be underestimated.

All of this without a clear idea of how this will affect Norfolk's most vulnerable families.
