Connections for All 2024

An NPC webinar to mark Dignity Action Day on 1st February 2024 heard how moving older adults out of digital poverty could save thousands of live a year through better health literacy, according to research by the Digital Poverty Alliance (DPA) and Deloitte.  


DPA Chief Executive Officer Elizabeth Anderson outlined the findings in a the webinar, which is  part of the NPC Connections For All Campaign. Elizabeth said: “Digital access is no longer a luxury—it is a basic necessity. That is why DPA is campaigning to end digital poverty by 2030.”  


The Alliance is bringing together organisations from the private, public and third sector, like NPC, to campaign to end digital poverty—which affects 13-19 million people over the age of 16. But worst affected are older people with the research estimating that 1 in 2 are in digital poverty, and 1 in 5 are in severe digital poverty.


Violet Rook from the NPC Digital Working Party discussed the Connections for All campaign's twin aims to signpost those older people who want to get online to get the right help and to ensure those who are not online are not discriminated against or disadvantaged and that alternative methods of communication should always be available.


Violet welcomed Elizabeth’s presentation and pledged to work closely with DPA towards ending digital exclusion.
