Some Facts and Figures
From our Facebook Entry:
There are 8.7 million people in the UK who have never used the internet. It probably doesn’t surprise you that 6 million of these people are over the age of 65, and about 4 million come from socially disadvantaged backgrounds. Now imagine how exciting it would be if the 30 million people in the UK who use the internet every day gave a bit of time to help someone get online.
Being a digital champion is not only easy to do and lots of fun, you could help someone to:
Find work & improve skills
7 million job ads appeared online last year. You now need computer skills for 90% of new jobs, and good computer skills can increase your earnings by 25%.
16 millon of us are already watching TV or listening to the radio through the web.
Government public information is moving online – you’ll increasingly need to access the web to do everything from influencing decisions that affect your area to collecting benefits.
25 million people in the UK make social connections through Facebook (only the US has more)
Households save up to £560 a year shopping and paying bills online.
Keep in touch
3.1 million people over 65 go more than a week without seeing family, friends or neighbours. The Internet can empower people to get connected so there’s no need to feel lonely.
