Digital support service

With support from NHS Digital, Independent Lives can offer digital skills support to the people in Sussex who are risk of digital exclusion.
Two million over 75’s in the UK are not online which equates to close to 23,000 older people in Sussex. There are also 13.6 million people with a disability in the UK. Of these, 32% lack even basic digital skills.

We are no longer accepting referrals for the digital support service as we are sat capacity until the project ends. If you need any urgent support or advice on next steps then please don't hesitate to get in touch.
