Being online isn't a luxury - it's a necessity
If you're offline, you're missing out on a wealth of benefits. Shopping online can save you up to £560 per year, whilst around 92% of all job vacancies require applicants to have at least basic IT skills.
There are also benefits associated with health and well-being: email, Zoom and Facebook are not only fantastic communication tools, they also play a vital role in reducing feelings of loneliness and isolation. In short, having access to the internet is empowering, liberating and seriously good fun.
