National Voices: Resource on tackling inequality and key actions to take when developing an approach with a digital component
National Voices, fellow members of the VCSE Health and Wellbeing Alliance, have recently launched a new resource, ‘Tackling inequality and disadvantage: Key actions policy makers, commissioners and provider organisations can take when developing an approach with a digital component’.
Through detailed insights, the resource highlights how people who experience the greatest barriers to accessing health and care are often the most likely to experience digital exclusion. This includes people with learning disabilities, people seeking asylum, people in contact with the criminal justice system, people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities and others.
The guidance also highlights the key actions people who design health and care can take to tackle inequality and disadvantage when using digital tools.
