Digital inclusion: getting offline people online Digital engagement: helping online people to do the things they want and need to

Digital Britain: Being Digital “ To ensure that everyone can share in the benefits of a Digital Britain.” The goal is not to get people using technology, it’s about the uses of technology to impact on and transform people’s lives.

25% of adults have never used the internet Source: ONS 2008

More than half people (54%) in lower social grades have never used the internet Higher social grades (AB) are twice as likely to use the internet (88%) as people from the lowest social grades (DE) (46%) Reinforces 2008 ICM/UK online centres data which indicates that of the total offline population 11% are AB compared with 49% DE OxiS 2009

It is a case of social equity: 97% of people in the highest income category (>£40,000) compared to only 38% of those in the lowest income (<£12,500) category Source OxiS 2009

It’s about PEOPLE not PIPES

 

The divide is narrowing but getting deeper. In 2009 C2DEs make up 74% of all people without internet access compared to 70% in 2008. ICM/UK online centres 2008 and 2009

So what are newly online people doing online?

Why (C2DE) users started using the internet “ Does the internet improve lives?” Freshminds April, 2009

Getting more people online Barriers remain the same in 2009 as in 2007 Freshminds 2007 and 2009 Access: 38% Skills & Confidence: 20% Motivation: 34%
