Community Conversations – getting Londoners online

Community Conversations – Getting Londoners online

Join us for the second Superhighways & HEAR Network hosted Digital Inclusion for Londoners


1) Digital Access for All – London Recovery Community Conversation

Mission 3: “Every Londoner to have access to connectivity, basic digital skills and digital employment opportunities and support by 2025.”

When the lockdown was introduced in March many Londoners had to move their work, learning, recreation, shopping, and support services online. Many people don’t have a quiet space at home to work or lack the devices, skills, and digital connectivity to get online.

It is forecast that in the next 20 years, 90% of all jobs will require some form of digital knowledge. However, 18% of Londoners lack one or more basic digital skills and large areas of London currently don’t have full fibre connections to homes.

The GLA has identified the following priorities for achieving this mission

•Develop a detailed picture of digital exclusion and to identify people in need of devices, skills, and connectivity (Short term)

• Increase digital skills through training and fill gaps in 4G and 5G provision (Medium term)

• Support Londoners to develop the skills to enter the tech sector and improve digital leadership (Long term )

What is our response to these priorities and how can we contribute to this achieving this mission?

HEAR aims, through its funded projects, and in partnership with its members, to provide a wide range of workshops, peer learning and networking and other events of benefit to London voluntary and community organisations, and those with whom they work. HEAR training, workshops and events address many different topics related to equality, human rights, diversity and inclusion.
The Policy and Campaigns project, funded by Trust for London, organises networking events to support organisations with their policy and campaigns work. Our work funded by City Bridge Trust organises a variety of events  and activities to build and strengthen bridges  between different parts of London, across different equality groups and specialisms, and to promote voice and influence. Our NetEquality and Stronger Together projects also hold events, seminars and workshops. In addition HEAR Works with its members and others to put on other events on specific equality or human rights themes.
