The Digital Inclusion Strategy aims to reduce the proportion of UK adults who lack basic digital skills by 25% by 2016, and by a further 25% every two years thereafter.

We are working with Government departments, public, private and voluntary sector organisations to assess the need to revise the current Strategy.
