Reinvigorating Digital InclusionEvent writing

Thursday 14 October 2021 (1.30pm – 4.30pm)

RIBA, Portland Place, London, W1B 1AD


If you’re in the midst of planning or delivering digital inclusion, then this is the event for you.

Digital has been an enabler and a barrier for everyone through the pandemic.  Many service providers have been through the most rapid organisational evolution imaginable. There have been unanticipated successes but plenty of challenges too.

At Reinvigorating Digital Inclusion we’ll be sharing the digital inclusion learnings, insights and challenges from the organisations we’ve been working with over the past 18 months and exploring what next for digital participation.

There'll be plenty of networking, oh and lots of tea and cake as well.


During the afternoon we will be running five different workshops including some delivered by of our brilliant guest speakers.

  • Setting up and running a device loan scheme with Citizens Online
  • Engaging older people with Caspar Kennerdale from Clear Community Web
  • Safety First with Healthwatch Islington
  • Using data to drive your project with Digital Unite
  • Delivering blended digital skills support with Digital Unite
