16 million people in Britain aren’t confident using digital tools
£15 million is being invested into the Go ON UK Digital Skills Alliance from the Big Lottery Fund due to the fact that over 16 million British people say they don’t have much confidence when it comes to using gadgets or ‘digital tools’, with 7.4 million people saying they have never even been online before.
The initiative is a non-profit initiative and it has been talked up by companies such as BBC, E.ON, EE, LLoyds Bank and more, hoping to bridge the gap between those in the know and those that are not in terms of technology in the UK.
17% of people in general in the UK don’t have access to the internet and as much as 26% of people in low-income groups have no access.
David Cameron himself has said that he wants the UK to be the world’s most digitally skilled nation and his government are backing the initiative wholeheartedly.
