It’s not all digital

Digital technology plays a major role in our lives, with an increasing amount of services and information being available only or preferably on-line.  However, whilst everyone has an equal right to access information and services, not everyone is online, or able to use digital technology.   This session explored how, in today’s increasingly digital world, we ensure we can still provide our information accessibly to people who don’t have access to digital technology or who are unable to use it.
