The Internet Service Providers’ Association (ISPA) has unveiled the shortlist for the Digital Inclusion Award at the annual internet industry awards, now in its 24th year.
ISPA UK and Good Things Foundation, leading digital inclusion charity, partnered to find and showcase the best digital inclusion initiatives across the UK in 2022.
Access to reliable good quality technology and being equipped with the skills to be able to make the most of our digitally connected world, are no longer luxuries - they are essential for all of us.
Together, ISPA and Good Things Foundation, want to highlight the good work being done to fix the digital divide. Whether it’s an individual, organisation or community group.
The 2022 ISPA Awards will shine a light on this vital cause.
Helen Milner OBE, Group Chief Executive of Good Things Foundation, said:
'Internet is now critical to our lives. We are a digital nation. And we're a digitally divided nation. So it is amazing to celebrate and commend genuine leadership on digital inclusion at all levels - from communities to combined authorities. In this challenging time, these creative, collaborative initiatives inspire us to do more to fix the digital divide - for good.'
The winner will be unveiled at the gala awards ceremony November 24th at the Landmark Hotel, Marylebone, London. Tickets are on sale at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/ispa-awards-2022-tickets-344202718597
