Leeds City Council
100% Digital Leeds is the Leeds City Council led initiative working to improve digital inclusion across the city and make Leeds the most digitally inclusive city for everyone. To achieve this, we are working with intermediary organisations across third sector, public sector and health and care.
100% Digital Leeds works with these organisations to help embed digital inclusion into what they already do, building their capacity to support the people they work with.
We want everyone to understand how digital can benefit them, gain the skills and confidence they need to make the most of digital, and get connected. We want 100% of people in Leeds to have the opportunity to get online and to know where they can go to get the help that best meets their needs.
The fundamental principles of the 100% Digital Leeds approach are:
• Convene community based assets to ensure that no-one is ‘hard to reach’.
• Connect people to their communities and a wider circle of care and support.
• Move to a whole system approach that enables people to independently look after themselves and improve their lives.
• Work together to design the right interventions with professionals and practitioners, staff and volunteers and people with lived experience.
