Superhighways is leading on work for NAVCA mapping, collecting and networking community led digital inclusion activity in London, linked to the VCS Emergencies Partnership, and running to the end of June. Superhighways feel it's really important that community sector work to bridge the digital divide, particularly during the pandemic, is recognised. And that they spot opportunities to share good practice and learn from one another.
This project aims to increase intelligence around what is happening at a local level in London boroughs. Superhighways are asking for your support with this mapping - please get in touch to share your knowledge using the form below.
What have you done differently and how has it worked?
The energy and commitment from voluntary and community groups to get things done during the pandemic has been epic. Our ability to innovate and adapt is legendary. Superhighways want to capture this innovation and learning as part of their mapping exercise across London.
The London Office for Technology and Information (LOTI) is mapping digital inclusion initiatives across London's boroughs. These findings about community lead digital inclusion activity in London will feed into their thinking re realising the London Recovery Board's Digital Inclusion for All mission, with an outcome of Every Londoner to have access to good connectivity, basic digital skills and the device or support they need to be online by 2025.
So as part of the existing collaboration with the HEAR Network, the GLA and LOTI, and to avoid yet another survey - please add any community initiatives you know of to the LOTI form at the end of this blog.
Please circulate the form via your networks to involve as many London-based community groups as possible to participate.
