This event explored solutions around accessing data and wi-fi, the first in a series of events designed to help you respond to the ‘digital revolution’ in your community.

Finding solutions that provide an affordable and sustainable connection to the internet is one of the biggest challenges faced by communities tackling digital exclusion.

In this event we explored short-term solutions which could provide access at a community level, as well as the longer-term changes that need to take place to ensure everyone has access.

For those that couldn’t attend the event, we wanted to outline some of the ideas we discussed:

Get Connected Community Broadband, Hartlepool
Community wi-fi hotspots, Bolton at Home Housing Association
Social prescribing for digital inclusion
#OperationWifi campaign

We encourage anybody interested in this topic to join our dedicated Workplace group, and/ or email Ellie at ellie.pope@localtrust.org.uk who will keep you updated when we have new events and resources on offer.
