Digital Exclusion

Welcome to  Innovate, our regular newsletter taking an in-depth look at a single topic from three different perspectives. This time we turn our focus on digital exclusion and look at initiatives taking place in the region to tackle the digital divide, hear from those at the forefront of the work, and consider the role of policy in reducing digital, and wider, inequalities within society.
