  • Some more figures from recent surveys
    A lot of these people fall into groups that we as third sector organisations are working with
    A CHOICE ?
    We could pack up and go home after drawing the conclusion that these people are not using the internet so we don’t need to change or service delivery to reach these people with new media. They are happy outside of the circle and we are happy to work with them like that.
    OR
    We could look at ways to bring these groups inside the circle and more effective in our work and drive down social exclusion through increased digital inclusion by looking at these tools and ideas?
    These are the people front line organisation in OUR sector see and are seeking to support every day. We have a responsibility as LIOs to lead by example.
