Book of You Signs the Digital Inclusion Charter for Wales
Posted on 27 May 2016
Apologies that this is late but as you will know, there has been so much exciting stuff going on!
In February this year, we attended a seminar where the Digital Inclusion Charter for organisations in Wales was launched. This promotes basic digital skills and helps people get online. There are six pledges and it is a very simple way for organisations to show they are committed to helping digitally excluded people (older people, people with disabilities, the unemployed, etc) enjoy the benefits of the internet. Of course we signed up. How could we not?
We are now committed to working together in the spirit of co-operation to promote digital inclusion in Wales. The Charter Principles are:
1. Ensure that all our staff and volunteers have an opportunity to learn basic digital skills, and that they take advantage of this opportunity.
2. Ensure that digital inclusion principles are embedded into our day to day activities.
3. 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.
4. Commit support and resources for digital inclusion activities and initiatives in Wales in whatever ways we can.
5. Share best practice and activity around digital inclusion with Digital Communities Wales so that our activities can be co-ordinated for maximum impact and measured consistently.
6. Look to build local partnerships amongst organisations which want to share ideas and co-ordinate activities with others in their area.
