Bridging the Divide initiative
We're working with people with disability to ensure everyone feels safe and confident in the digital world.
We believe everyone needs to feel safe and confident going online.
That’s why we are partnering with community organisations, funders and advocates to support people with disability to have the digital skills and confidence they need to connect with others, work and access services online.
Our Bridging the Divide projects
Upskilling with Down Syndrome Australia We have partnered with Down Syndrome Australia to support young people with intellectual disability and their parents or carers to improve their digital skills. We're creating accessible learning resources for learners and educators, consulting with people with lived experience as we go to make sure they best meet the community's needs. This pilot project is made possible due to the funding support of the Department of Social Services and the auDA Foundation.
Advocating for more support We believe everyone, no matter where they live or how old they are, should have access to effective, community-based support to learn essential digital skills. That’s why we’re advocating for tailored programs to be extended to support more people with disability.
Raising awareness We're raising awareness of how the digital divide impacts low income families through our Digital Nation Australia report and infographic. We've compiled all the latest digital inclusion facts and stats so you don't have to.
