SocialBox.Biz Community Interest Company believes that disadvantaged groups such as older people in isolation, homeless, and refugees should have ready access to technology to speak to loved ones, order food and medication online, and continue their education – especially in the context of the current c-19 pandemic.
The three key goals of their manifesto include following:
- eradicating digital poverty in the UK by the year 2030;
- reducing the amount of ‘unneeded’ yet usable technology being scrapped by organisations;
- and revising procurement policies in the UK relating to old technology.
A large number of charities have joined this appeal already.
