Digital Inclusion Toolkit


  1. Project outputs
  2. Project timeline

This project, led by Leeds and Croydon Councils, intended to tackle the real world challenges and chronic lack of digital capability in certain communities across the UK.

Individuals lack access to equipment, connectivity and skills, while many SMEs lack the know-how to trade successfully.

The output is a comprehensive playbook that covers a wide range of issues in providing guidance for teams planning digital inclusion projects locally, based on the experiences of the contributing organisations.

Project timeline

August 2020

The Digital Inclusion Toolkit project receives £80,000 of funding from the Local Digital C-19 Challenge.

February 2021

The project receives £125,000 of follow-on funding from the Local Digital Fund to continue their work.

In the second phase of work, the project is looking to expand the content on the Digital Inclusion Toolkit platform, and to engage potential contributors and users in a more structured way.

The team will pay particular attention to encouraging content from new organisations and on themes that are not currently covered by the experiences of existing partners. For example, this could relate to the different challenges of delivering digital inclusion programmes in rural areas.
