Tackling digital exclusion
Getting Oxfordshire Online is a new initiative that refurbishes donated devices, and passes them to people who need them. It also helps people to access the data, training and support they need to get online.
Through a collaborative, partnership approach, Getting Oxfordshire Online is putting the infrastructure in place to deliver a sustainable, long-term solution to the problem of digital exclusion.
This project was initiated by Oxfordshire Community Foundation, and received seed funding from
Our Common Good and Oxfordshire County Council. The project is now hosted by SOFEA.
