What's on the agenda?

Insights and perspectives on the latest digital inclusion initiatives from invited speakers and partner updates

Speaker One: Simon Joos, Joanne Hatton, Paul Fulton, Sue Scott & Sarah Thornton - Bury Council

Bury Works: Digital for All and Bury Adult Learning Service

Bury Council will provide key learning from its Digital for All programme. The project was set-up to tackle digital exclusion, including low skills, providing access to digital equipment and connectivity, digital solutions to daily tasks, bespoke 1-1 and group support, empowering communities to deliver programmes themselves and more.

Bury Adult Learning Service will also share its approach to engaging residents from diverse communities, pre and during the COVID pandemic, with cross reflections against the digital agenda. This includes residents who are digitally excluded, from ethnic minorities and those with low to medium mental health support needs.

Speaker Two: Sarah Mackey, East Riding of Yorkshire Council

East Riding of Yorkshire Council - equipping staff with digital skills

To become a more digital organisation we need to ensure staff are provided with the digital skills and tools they need to help them to help customers and do their job more effectively as well as benefitting them in their personal lives.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council will share a recent project which considered how having digital skills could benefit teams who wouldn’t typically be required to have these skills. After identifying a suitable pilot service area, the project team built a rationale for why the service would benefit from being more digitally skilled, including the benefits to the individual staff member, their service and also their customers.
