Why we need your help
Digital exclusion is the UK’s silent emergency. Thousands of people still lack the basic skills and confidence to operate a computer, restricting their access to opportunities that the rest of us take for granted.
So much of modern living relies on digital connection – whether staying in touch with friends and family, work and career progression, or managing bills and finance. Covid-19 took this isolation to another level, physically cutting people off from the outside world. The result is loneliness, poor mental and physical wellbeing, disenfranchisement and unemployment.
Yet, digital inclusion is a source of hope. Few social interventions have such a rapid and profound impact on quality of life.
Will you help the WEA to smash this hidden disconnect in society? Our digital outreach team provides dedicated tuition to help beginners take their first steps across the digital divide. Within several weeks, students will learn how to set up their technology, write emails, shop online, find essential services and reach out to friends and loved ones.
For more than a century, the WEA has championed access in society. We will focus our ICT expertise and community spirit to bring a fixed solution to those who want to cross over the digital divide.
Few interventions result in such a rapid improvement in quality of life.
Our mission is to leave nobody offline. Your donation will open a window to the outside world.
