Broadband

Working Broadband GB

Broadband technology will impact considerably on many aspects of society and the economy. There is a danger that people from disadvantaged groups including those from Black and ethnic minority communities will be left behind. The Working Broadband project works to promote the use of Broadband for the benefit of all.

Working Broadband GB is a Project promoting social inclusion through broadband access for disadvantaged groups as well as exploiting the potential of the broadband technology for individual and community empowerment.

The project employs cross-sector National and TransNational development partnerships between organisations working in the fields of social inclusion, equal opportunities, training, culture, media and technology.

Partner organisations will work collectively towards the following aims:

    Facilitate Equal opportunities

    Enable all communities to access the wide information and knowledge base available through internet and multimedia

    Focus on the arts, culture, and media sectors

    Develop employment and enterprise opportunities for clients

    Deliver programmes in the heart of disadvantaged communities in the UK and ensure full consultation and empowerment of local people to maximise the potential of the project

    Maximise the potential of fast internet access (broadband) for socially excluded groups

    Raise the profile and promote the benefits of broadband access to Black and ethnic minorities and individuals

    Highlight and report on examples of broadband use for the benefit of disadvantaged groups

    Identify and share knowledge between partners in other E.U member states

Working Broadband GB is part of Equal, a programme established through the European Social Fund (ESF) to help those groups whose job opportunities suffer because they are victims of discrimination and inequality.
