Tackling the issues
Through our Digital Reach pilot programme, we aim to help build young people’s knowledge and competence of the online world. For many, this means focusing on improving confidence and awareness so they can safely engage at a similar level to their peers.
We will equip the more advanced young people with the skills necessary to access opportunities such as education or employment in the future. Online safety, a theme that runs throughout, will form the basis of all of the work.
The pilot has already begun with Digital Project Workers in place across our programme.
Our next blog in the New Year will look at how the pilot is progressing so far.
