A recent report from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) states that one in eight British adults has never used the internet – a staggering 6.4 million people in the UK.
The report goes on to say of households with one adult aged 65 or over, only 41% of households had an Internet connection. In contrast, almost double the proportion (80%) of households had an Internet connection where there was only one adult aged 16 to 64 years.
Here at UCanDoIT we have a mission to bring that figure down, learner by learner, which is why we are asking people to pledge funds to help us achieve this. Details of how are available here.
If you have any doubts about the benefits our training gives to learners perhaps this video will help.
