Digital inclusion is an enabler to help people, communities, and services to achieve a wide range of ambitions and outcomes. West Yorkshire Combined Authority has secured funding to create a digital inclusion programme that will help people and communities across the region. The programme will deliver the priority actions in the West Yorkshire Digital Skills plan.
Digital Inclusion West Yorkshire will build on the success of 100% Digital Leeds, which is one of the most successful, high-profile and well-respected digital inclusion programmes in the country. We will use the 100% Digital Leeds Community-based approach to digital inclusion as our template to develop local initiatives.
Speakers will include:
Tracy Brabin, Mayor of West Yorkshire
Leonardo Tantari, Chief Digital and Information Officer, Leeds City Council and NHS (Leeds) West Yorkshire ICB
Amy Hearn, Digital Inclusion Manager, 100% Digital Leeds
