We believe that this represents a unique opportunity to explore digital inclusion issues, policy, practical interventions and social outcomes on a citywide scale.
Led by Professor Simeon Yates, the aim of this project is to explore the socially and economically viable options for social tariff digital inclusion support for social housing tenants including equipment, access, training and support. The project is a collaboration between a number of social housing providers in Manchester (e.g. Wigan and Leigh Housing), technology providers (e.g. Virgin Media) and universities (e.g. UoL).
