Understanding the Map

  • Scores and Colours: Indicate how inclusive an area is digitally. A quick glance at the overall ADII shows where improvements are needed.
  • Key Aspects: Focus on Access, Affordability, and Ability — the three pillars of the ADII that assess an area's digital inclusion.
    • Access: The availability of online tools and connections.
    • Affordability: The cost of accessing digital tools and services.
    • Ability: The skills to use digital technology efficiently.

Understanding these scores and areas helps us pinpoint exactly where support is needed. It informs local councils on how to best assist our communities in becoming more digitally inclusive. This isn't just about having internet access; it's about ensuring everyone has the opportunity to gain the skills and resources they need to thrive in a digital world.
