Programme Background

Approximately 300,000 young people are estimated to be “digitally excluded” in the UK as they lack the basic, resilient digital skills needed to access society to its fullest. As part of Nominet Trust’s Digital Reach programme, UK Youth will address the lack of digital skills in young people, particularly those who are facing personal, circumstantial or systemic barriers which could lead to digital exclusion, and empower them to access a world that is now digital-by-default.
