Event description

Description

Around 21,000 people in Epping Forest are still struggling to get online and reap the benefits of digital services.

Citizens Online were asked to investigate the current digital inclusion landscape in Epping Forest and help formulate a plan. We've researched, consulted, surveyed and assessed the situation and would love to share our findings with you, launching our “Digital Inclusion in Epping Forest” evaluation report.

  • Where are the communities that are hardest to reach?

  • What are the influencing factors that keep people offline or needing digital skills?

  • What part can you play in people’s future digital engagement?

There is so much fantastic work going on across Epping Forest to tackle digital exclusion – but there is also real need for support and collaboration. What else can be done?

You are invited to join this conversation at Theydon Bois Village Hall, on Monday 8 July, from 3 – 5pm.

At the meeting we would like to:

  • Discuss our findings with you – what do you think the priorities should be?

  • Explore the potential for collaboration and a joint action plan

  • Have some fun with digital technology!

Who should attend?

  • Anyone concerned about the lack of digital skills among people they work with

  • Anyone working with people struggling to manage their finances, where digital might help

  • Anyone concerned about how ‘digital-by-default’ services like Universal Credit will affect their customers

  • Anyone already supporting those with limited digital skills, or interested in doing so

  • Anyone with an interest in what digital help is available in your area

  • Anyone preparing their organisation for the expansion of Universal Credit

  • Anyone interested in digital transformation, and ensuring that the greatest possible number of people can access and use your online services

What should you bring?

A smartphone, tablet or laptop through which you can access the free WiFi and take part in interactive online sessions.

Coffee, tea and biscuits will be provided

Please advise us if you have any accessibility needs
