CCHPR’s third report for New Horizons focuses on digital inclusion, which encompasses access to suitable devices and internet connections, as well as digital literacy and a range of other factors. It draws on interviews with coaches and participants from the New Horizons project, to show how experiences of digital exclusion are shaped by the broader contexts of people’s lives.

The report, by Hannah Holmes and Gemma Burgess, highlights the various factors which influence individuals’ levels of digital exclusion, and shows that many of these factors are rooted in poverty and entrenched inequalities. It also indicates how New Horizons can help participants to move towards a greater level of digital inclusion, and shows that this is important for meeting aims set out by the New Horizons project, including managing finances, and finding work.
