This webinar discussed how important digital access is for all young people, particularly those who are care experienced. The participants consider the various aspects of digital inclusion, what would be required to achieved this from local and national partners, and how to create the pathway to a society where all have the benefits of digital access.
This report shares the findings of a focused piece of research carried out in Scotland by CELCIS and partners at the University of Edinburgh. The aim of the research was to understand care leavers' experiences of digital exclusion before and during the COVID-19 restrictions in Scotland in 2020 and builds on earlier work which explored this issue by looking at the experience and provision across 17 local authority areas in Scotland by surveying those working within local authority services.
The conversation was facilitated by journalist and broadcaster Pennie Taylor.
