What is Digital Inclusion?

Digital Inclusion is about bridging the digital divide. It is based on the premise that all Australians should be able to make full use of digital technologies: to manage their health and wellbeing; access education and services; organise their finances; and connect withfriends, family, and the world beyond.

The goal of digital inclusion is to enable everyone to access and use digital technologies effectively. It goes beyond simply owning a computer or having access to a smartphone. Social and economic participation lies at the heart of digital inclusion; using online and mobile technologies to improve skills, enhance quality of life, educate, and promote wellbeing, civic engagement and sustainable development across the whole of society.
