Digital Participation and Social Justice in Scotland

09 October 2016

A report is out from Carnegie UK Trust, examining the links between digital exclusion and other forms of social exclusion. Digital Participation and Social Justice in Scotland identifies who is most likely to be digitally excluded and draws on detailed statistical analysis, carried out by Ipsos MORI, to examine the key drivers of this exclusion – including working status, housing tenure, age, qualifications, active lifestyles and mental health.

You can download the report from here.

The Trust noted that it is often those who could gain the most from internet access who are the least likely to be connected – a concern that the Panel has raied on numerous occasions - our views on this can be found in our consultation response to the House of Commons Science and Technology Committee’s call for evidence in relation to Digital Skills (PDF 497KB, opens in a new window).
