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.

Upskilling with Down Syndrome Australia We've partnered with Down Syndrome Australia to support young people with intellectual disability and their parents or carers to improve their digital skills. We've creating accessible learning resources for learners and educators, consulting with people with lived experience as we go. This project is made possible due to the support of the Australian Government and auDA Foundation.

Supporting people with low vision We've partnered with Guide Dogs NSW/ACT and our community partners to ensure that people with low vision can get accessible digital skills support in their local area. Our pilot project is taking place in 5 communities in NSW & ACT.

Blueprint to close Australia's digital divide

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.
