Working together to build back better

02 Oct 2020


It’s encouraging to see the Government investing in digital skills at this crucial time. Doing so is paramount for our economic recovery.

However, it’s important to remember that there are 9 million people in the UK without the basic digital skills to use the internet without help.

The Government should work together with businesses and other organisations to ensure that those on the wrong side of the digital divide aren’t locked out and left behind.

Our plan for a Great Digital Catch Up would ensure that 4.5 million people during this Parliament get the digital skills they need to restart their careers and kickstart the economy.
