Summary

This study was commissioned to investigate the extent to which social exclusion and digital exclusion coincide; exploring the questions 'do people who suffer significant social disadvantage also suffer digital exclusion? And if so what are the key social drivers that contribute to digital exclusion?' This project was led by the Oxford Internet Institute, in partnership with the Office for National Statistics and Office of Communications (Ofcom). A framework has been developed which was applied to surveys data from 2007 across the 3 partner organisations. The results of the survey will help to inform digital inclusion policy and actions.

The findings and recommendations in this report are those of the consultant authors and do not necessarily represent the views or proposed policies of the Department for Communities and Local Government.
