The Digital Poverty Alliance has launched a Charter for Digital Inclusion and updated its National Delivery Plan.

The organisation – a charity involving people from government, business, the third sector and education – has outlined core priorities as calling for affordable connectivity, wider access to digital services across the UK and improving digital access to healthcare.

It said the charter provides a call for organisations to commit to three or more goals on raising awareness, accessible services, device donation, digital skills development, and partnership for impact – and that it has already garnered support across various sectors.

Strategic call for action

Elizabeth Anderson, CEO of the Digital Poverty Alliance, said: "This crucial election year intensifies our determination. We are advocating to ensure the voices of those impacted by digital poverty influence policy decisions.

“We also recognise that no one sector can end digital poverty alone, so launching our Charter for Digital Inclusion at this time is a strategic call to action for every organisation to embed digital inclusivity within how they work."

The delivery plan highlights the potential of new technologies, such as roaming and mesh networks to address longstanding challenges in connectivity and affordability.
