What we do

Our vision is a world where everyone benefits from digital. We support people to feel confident going online.

 

How we work

We make a real impact by working with our network of community partners to provide local digital inclusion support that transforms people’s lives.

We build capacity in community organisations through specialised training packages, grants and program support, and work with partners in government and business to develop programs that make a real impact in people's lives.

We strive to ensure the digital divide is acknowledged by decision-makers and raise the voices of those who are digitally excluded.

We're the people behind a range of digital inclusion programs that you may have heard of
