Amplifying Digital Inclusion: NEC’s Impact

A Grateful Acknowledgment

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to NEC for their generous donation of 9 large 65” digital screens with stands and 14 tablets. These are more than mere hardware—they’re pathways to empowerment.

Creating a Ripple Effect

These devices will be gifted to members of Salford’s Digital Providers Network who have shared that lack of suitable devices is a barrier for them when delivering digital inclusion support. We are looking forward to delivering these digital screens to our network and sharing the impact they are this space for further updates.

NEC’s contribution reverberates beyond screens and tablets:

  • Skills Enhancement: These tools empower Salford’s digital providers network, bridging gaps in skills and knowledge.
  • Local Impact: Communities will thrive as digital inclusion becomes a reality.

Incorporating Social Values

Salford’s Commitment

Our Digital Data and Technology (DDaT) team is on a mission. We’re weaving social values into contracts, ensuring that digital inclusion isn’t just a goal—it’s a contractual imperative

Removing Barriers: A Data-Led Approach

We’ve engaged extensively with our network:

  • Resident Insights: Surveyed 200 Salford residents to understand their needs.
  • Data-Led: Utilising our Digital Exclusion Risk Index
  • Network Challenges: Conducted surveys with all 82 network members, identifying delivery challenges.
  • School Data: Gathered insights on children lacking access to remote learning.

By collating this information and facilitating existing support, we pose a crucial question to local businesses and organisations: How can we help you accelerate your support to residents? Whether it’s devices, broadband connectivity, or digital champion volunteers, every contribution matters. Let’s create a more inclusive city by removing these barriers.

Join us. Let’s amplify support—one screen, one tablet, and one pledge at a time.
