Making Connections: Community-led action on data poverty report

VONNE has been doing a lot of work around digital and as part of this Georgia Goncalves, our Partnerships and Projects Support Officer, attended a Local Trust workshop which focused on community-led action on data poverty in April this year.

She said: “It was really interesting to hear about some of the experiences of other organisations that are trying to help people get online, specifically focusing on their access to data.”

Discussion from the workshop fed into Local Trust’s Making Connections report, which looks at the impact of Covid-19 in highlighting the issues raised around people’s access to data, how local groups have tried to provide solutions to digital exclusion, what supports and hinders this, and the next steps that should be taken.
