HEAR and its members work on this topic in a number of ways. through:
- Our Digital Inclusion in London Network meetings
- The research we have done on the wider impacts of the Covid 19 emergency
- Forums such as the Digital Exclusion Task Force; the London Recovery Task Force; Health Equity Group; Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Group; and other relevant bodies.
- The case studies we have commissioned and collected, and our digital exclusion campaign video project, both funded by Trust for London.
The pandemic brought to the forefront already existing inequalities related to digital access and services, and also created new barriers and problems through the rapid adjustment to many aspects of daily life. It is also recognised that it created opportunities for some people and groups.
HEAR will be pleased to work with colleagues to discuss the full range of digital exclusion issues our members have highlighted. Our members work with and for London’s communities at grass roots level and are keen to connect with all stakeholders to combat digital exclusion together.
