Better ConNEcted:

Campaigning for Digital Inclusion in the North East


Better ConNEcted imagines a North East where digital inclusion is a right enjoyed by all. We want people to have the skills, technology and internet to access goods, services and information online, in order to close the digital divide. 

Access to the internet is a necessity. Our aim is to improve digital inclusion in the region to create a fairer, more equal North East.
