December saw the launch of the 100% Digital Leeds model for a community-based approach to digital inclusion, funded by the Local Government Association. The model takes other councils through the Stages and Steps required to apply the 100% Digital Leeds approach in their locality, helping them to develop and implement their own digital inclusion interventions.
Since the model was published it has seen 233 page views and 89 downloads. The model is also featured in The Leeds lessons on digital inclusion, an article by UK Authority celebrating the national recognition of the 100% Digital Leeds programme. UK Authority explores and showcases best practice and innovation in the use of technology, digital and data for the delivery of modern public services that meet both the needs of the public sector and the citizens they serve.
“Overall, it is showing what can be achieved with an approach that is both city-wide and involves working with a wide range of partners and communities.”UK Authority
The model for a community-based approach to digital inclusion is on the Digital Inclusion Toolkit.
