Hello <<First Name>>

As part of our Bridging the Digital Divide campaign, we're asking government to make a commitment to ensuring 100% of the nation is digitally included - and we need your help to do this!

11.3 million adults in the UK still lack the essential digital skills that are necessary for life and work, and almost 7 million adults in the UK - 12% of the adult population - will be left behind in ten years as a result of digital exclusion.

Help bridge the digital divide by asking your local MP to sign our Early Day Motion. Online centres network logo, good things foundation logo

To ensure government hear us, we need to let MPs know about the campaign. You can do this by writing to your MP, and asking them to sign our Early Day Motion. The Early Day Motion requests a government debate about the importance of digital inclusion. 

You can find the details of your local MP at www.theyworkforyou.com and we have put together a draft letter for you to send here
