As part of our work with Wandsworth Digital we’ve partnered with Superhighways, who are also leading on work for NAVCA mapping, collecting and networking community led digital inclusion activity in London, linked to the VCS Emergencies Partnership. It’s running to the end of June.
We feel it’s really important that community sector work to bridge the digital divide, particularly during the pandemic, is recognised. And that we spot opportunities to share good practice and learn from each other, and are involved in shaping this work in future.
To further existing collaboration with the HEAR Network, the GLA and London Office for Technology and Innovation (LOTI), we’re asking you to help by adding any community initiatives you know about or deliver yourselves to this LOTI form (scroll to the bottom of the blog for the form link). You can check what’s already been added via this AirTable public view.
We’ll then highlight ‘third sector’ initiatives to raise awareness of the extent of this work with central government as part of the VCSEP. But at the same time, raise community profile with LOTI and other stakeholders, who are focusing on the Recovery Board’s mission: Digital Access for All – Every Londoner to have access to good connectivity, basic digital skills and the device or support they need to be online by 2025.
Please complete the form
If you know of a digital project happening in the capital that supports digitally excluded Londoners, then please add it’s details to this form.
