Digital Inclusion Initiative

Over 4,500 people in the Liverpool City Region are set to receive a free tablet with internet access in the next year to help tackle the digital divide. The scheme is part of a new Digital Inclusion Initiative, which aims to connect people with technology and stimulate economic growth across Merseyside. People will be referred for a tablet by the Department of Work and Pensions, with group training sessions also on offer to help acquaint people with their new technology. “It’s our duty to properly connect our residents up with this 21st century necessity,” Steve Rotheram, Mayor of the Liverpool City Region, said. “Schemes like this will help us to directly target those who are most in need of our support. We’re creating what I hope will be a better-connected future that everyone in our region can benefit from – it’s proper levelling up in action.”

Why this website has been created

There are over 700 registered businesses and voluntary organisations within Kirkdale. We have their names and addresses from Companies House.

There are already some local initiatives, such as the Merseyside Youth Support Trust https://mymyst.co.uk/ based at the Old St. Lawrence School on Westminster School, but that is restricted to the 18 to 30 age group and focused on business startups.

Liverpool Chamber of Commerce for businesses and Liverpool Council for Voluntary Services are based in Liverpool City Centre and cover the whole of Liverpool, without focusing on one specific ward /parish.

Alt Valley www.altvalley.co.uk demonstrates the benefits of bringing together business and voluntary services in one local hub with a mix of private and public funding.
