It is important to stay connected with family, friends and our communities. The pandemic has made this even more critical.
Digital exclusion is a barrier to all citizens with learning disabilities
What we will do
The Scottish Government wants to end digital exclusion in Scotland. This means providing technology and connectivity to those that need it to open up access to education, health care and employment as well as help us to feel less isolated and keep us connected to family and friends. Part of our current response includes providing devices through our Connecting Scotland programme, however we can continue to build on the work undertaken during the pandemic to promote digital inclusion.
Action 28 –
A - We will improve digital access for people with learning/intellectual disabilities so that they can stay connected to their friends, family, and communities.
B - We will improve digital access for autistic people so that they can stay connected to their friends, family, and communities.
