Did you know that around 15% of the UK’s population rarely or never uses the internet? This percentage is slightly lower than that in Reading but there are still geographic areas and demographics that have remarkably low levels of internet access.
Join us for a videoconference where we’ll be discussing the digital divide in Reading and exploring innovative ways to get all the people of Reading online.
At the event we will be discussing three main topics:
- What new ways can we find to help people without internet get access to equipment and broadband?
- How can the Get Online project evolve as a result of the Covid-19 crisis and the need for social distancing and other protection measures?
- How can we spread the word and reach more people that aren’t currently online?
The videoconference link can be accessed directly on the day at www.rva.org.uk/lets-get-online – but we would be grateful if you could register in advance at www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/lets-get-reading-online-tickets-108825768804 to give us an idea of numbers.
In the meantime, there’s another way you could really help us! Please take 5 minutes to complete our quick Get Online project survey at www.rva.org.uk/get-online-survey-2020.
