Digital Inclusion Charter
The Digital Inclusion Charter is for organisations in Wales which are promoting basic digital skills and helping people get online.
Since the launch of the Charter hundreds of organisations have signed-up.
The Charter includes six pledges and is a simple way for organisations to show their commitment to helping digitally excluded people enjoy the benefits of the internet – particularly older people, people with disabilities, unemployed people, social housing tenants and families in poverty.
Signatories of the Charter also commit to working together in a spirit of co-operation to promote digital inclusion in Wales.
- Ensure that all our staff and volunteers have an opportunity to learn basic digital skills, and that they take advantage of this opportunity.
- Ensure that digital inclusion principles are embedded into our day to day activities.
- Encourage and support our staff and volunteers to help other people to get online and have the confidence to develop basic digital skills, and help other organisations to embrace digital tools.
- Commit support and resources for digital inclusion activities and initiatives in Wales in whatever ways we can.
- Share best practice and activity around digital inclusion with Digital Communities Wales – Digital Confidence, Health and Well-being so that our activities can be co-ordinated for maximum impact and measured consistently.
- Look to build local partnerships amongst organisations which want to share ideas and co-ordinate activities with others in their area.
