Digital Exclusion in the UK

The latest Office of National Statistics (ONS) data estimates that 4.2 million UK citizens have never used the internet or last used it more than three months ago.

That’s 7.8% of the UK adult population that are not regularly using the internet and associated devices, while 21% of UK adults do not have the essential digital skills needed for day-to-day life.

Digital exclusion is a significant problem for the elderly, people with disabilities and those without the financial power to get online. The challenge is to equip everybody digitally excluded with the skills, motivation and trust to go online, be digitally capable and utilise the power of the internet to access key services.

Cantium's Digital Exclusion Insights

Our Digital Exclusion insights provide you with the latest information, examples and insights on Digital Inclusion in the UK. The challenge is to increase digital literacy among elderly, and for youth and adults. We address this by studying data from the Census, Office for National Statistics (ONS), Lloyds Banking Group and other organisations working to tackle digital exclusion.

By working with organisations across the public sector, in local government and health care, our insights also include information and intimate details on how other public sector organisations are tackling digital exclusion. We can provide you with guidance on how you can improve digital literacy and track this effectively in your communities.
