Access to digital solutions can be more challenging for some populations like those on lower incomes, lack of confidence or skills to use digital channels. Others may always prefer face-to-face services. Lack of trust in the security or reliability of digital technologies can also be a barrier. Therefore, digitalisation should be understood as a potential to enable greater equality in accessing social services. From the many good practices, we have gathered for this conference, we have seen that there is huge potential for digital inclusion to improve the wellbeing of people supported by social services. In this session, we will learn about three innovative programmes that focus on technology for those who may have additional needs for care and support.
