New report gives recommendations for tackling digital exclusion in Glasgow


Public, private and third sectors should work together for digital inclusion

Following a report by the Carnegie UK Trust that revealed that Glasgow’s broadband take-up has been lower than the UK’s average, the trust has published another report titled ‘Across the Divide: Tackling Digital Exclusion in Glasgow’. It gives suggestions as to how the digital divide can be dealt with, applicable not only to Glasgow but to cities across the country.

Recommendations in the report include:

public, private and third sectors should work together and a digital participation fund should be set up for this purpose;

existing activities to improve digital inclusion should collaborate with one another;

fear of using computers, such as spam and viruses, should be dealt with.
