Digital Inclusion and older people
Digital Inclusion is about ensuring that as many people as possible have access to, and skills to use things like smartphones, tablets and computers, social media and the internet so they can participate and benefit in the new technology.
Outside the Box has been awarded an Investing in Ideas grant by the Big Lottery Fund to investigate what helps older people get the most from new technology and the internet.
We have published a set of hints and tips with information and advice about getting online cheaply, using the internet wisely and staying safe online for older people. There are also tips for people providing training or advice for older people on getting started and feeling included in the digital world.
