Helping four million people and businesses cross the digital divide by 2025.
What is the digital divide?
The gap between people with internet access and people without it is called the digital divide. In short, it refers to unequal access to connectivity, digital skills and technologies in society.
For people negatively affected by the digital divide in the UK, it’s difficult to complete everyday tasks, such as accessing online learning or staying in touch with loved ones.
What is our everyone.connected campaign?
We believe connectivity is essential, and everyone should have access to the opportunities it provides. The digital divide between those who have access to digital technology, and the 1.7 million households who do not, is at risk of widening further.
We have helped over 2 million people and businesses cross the digital divide.
How we’re keeping everyone connected

Together we have helped 2,061,959 people cross the digital divide
