Epping Forest District Council, in partnership with digital inclusion charity Citizens Online, is working on a project to help reduce digital exclusion.
Funded by Epping Forest District Council and The Big Lottery Fund it is part of the One Digital programme.
A recent analysis identified that around 21,000 Epping Forest residents lack essential digital skills meaning they can’t always access the services they need. They also miss out on the many benefits that digital can bring, such as feeling less alone, finding work, saving money and improving health.
These results reinforced the need for a Digital Inclusion Network across the district with a joint action plan to help tackle some of the biggest problems being faced by providers in the area.
We are holding a workshop, in partnership with digital inclusion charity Citizens Online, to bring organisations together to look at digital inclusion in Epping Forest.
The interactive workshop takes place on Monday 8 July from 15.00 – 17.00, at Theydon Bois Village Hall.
The purpose of the workshop is to share findings from our research, hear views on those findings – identify priorities, explore the potential for collaboration and have some fun with digital technology.
It is aimed at service providers who have an interest in digital transformation and ensuring the greatest possible number of people can access and use your online services.
