Top Tips to help with Digital Inclusion

Digital learning through Covid – opportunities to redress inequalities through including people with learning disabilities in digital redesign plans

NDTi is part of the Valuing People Alliance, which, in turn, is a member of the Health and Well Being Alliance - a partnership between sector representatives and the health and care system. It is a key element of the Health and Wellbeing Programme.

During the coronavirus pandemic, many services went online.

Digital exclusion during the pandemic may have affected adults in several ways. For example, they may not have been able to readily access health advice, medical appointments, or support services for housing or social care.

As more health services go digital, there is a greater risk of people being excluded from accessing services, creating bigger health inequalities. We wanted to help health and social care services, partners and others to work to ensure that people with learning disabilities and autistic people can be digitally included, so we coproduced these Top Tips for Digital Inclusion based on evidence and the experiences of people with learning disabilities, their families, and supporters.
