So who are the partners who can increase the pace at which those with low financial and digital capability find the help they need? Are they Councils, Charities, Social Landlords, Banks – yes certainly, but is there now a case for a wider community to support these actions such as digital businesses?
There are still millions of people in the UK who don’t have the right skills and financial capability to take part fully in society or to benefit from the benefits of a digital society. Each year this is measured by a UK wide Digital Index. The Lloyds Bank 2017 Consumer Digital Index, published on 30 March, shows there have been some encouraging improvements over the past year – with over 1m people with greater digital skills and more than 300,000 improving their financial capability. The South East region’s findings in the Index are also positive and have some small improvement since 2016, but there is still no room for complacency.
