The digital divide

The digital divide

Nearly a quarter of UK adults and small businesses and over half of all UK charities do not have the basic digital skills necessary to go online and making the most of the growing digital economy. Promoting digital inclusion has always formed a key part of the BSG’s work programme and the BSG engages regularly with the Government Digital Service as a signatory to the Digital Inclusion Charter. A number of BSG sponsors support initiatives from voluntary organisations such as Go On UK and the Tinder Foundation to provide people with the tools and to skills to confidently go online.
