While many of us have spent our locked-down lives on video calls and moved all our shopping online for our convenience, COVID-19 has shed a new light on people who are digitally excluded. Without appropriate devices, adequate data and connectivity, or digital skills to get online, it is estimated that up to 40,000 people in Oxfordshire will continue to be isolated even as lockdown measures ease.

Our vision: a 100% digitally included county

Adrian Sell, CEO at Oxfordshire Community Foundation, says: “Being online is no longer a ‘nice to have’, it is a need. Applying for a job, for benefits, accessing healthcare and many other important parts of life are increasingly being done online – and this change has been accelerated by the pandemic. COVID-19 also provides the opportunity to raise awareness and harness the goodwill of the public, who have already shown a huge willingness to help.”

Getting Oxfordshire Online will address lack of access to devices and data, and support people with the training they need.  If you want to learn more or support the project in another way, you can visit our project page here.

Thank you for your support.

Oxfordshire Community Foundation is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (number 1151621).
