West Essex Digital Inclusion DCMS Pilot Evaluation Report
Posted on: June 11, 2020
We are proud to release our evaluation report of a digital inclusion partnership pilot in West Essex, funded by DCMS, involving Citizens online, the Digital Boomers Group, delivered by CVSU, VAEF, Rainbow Services, supported by Your Alcove Ltd, and Acticheck Ltd.
This pilot lasted one year exploring the merits of the Living Smart Homes concept and the Digital Buddies and Learners model, focusing upon the elderly, and those of any age living with a disability, We are extremely proud of the outcomes and learning acquired about the digitally excluded within our communities and how we can reduce the barriers to the lack of inclusion within these cohorts.
I think it strongly proves that digital has a vitally important and relevant part to play within the lives of many of our marginalised and excluded members of our society. Also it shows how it can improve their lives in the sense of being able to connect with the outside world and function easier within your home when coping with other life challenges.
Please feel free to share and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
