Digital Inclusion

  • Advice NI have partnered with SENAC to deliver a tailored Digital Skills programme for parents of children with additional needs.

  • Northern Ireland has the highest rate of non-internet users on these islands at 14.7% (Office of National Statistics, 2021. Digital 2021: Ireland).

  • Advice NI, in partnership with the Special Educational Needs Advice Centre (SENAC), plan to support carers of children with learning difficulties to become more digitally included enabling them to engage with policy and decision makers and to access their rights and entitlements. Funded by the Department of Health, this project will support carers to learn the digital skills to go online safely and to access their rights and entitlements. We will be sharing more updates on this project in our next edition of Advice Matters.


  • Advice NI has proved that technology isn’t just for the young. The organisation has just won an all-Ireland award for its older person’s digital inclusion project, Supporting Active Engagement, which is funded by Big Lottery Fund.

  • Volunteers' Week is an annual celebration of the fantastic contribution millions of volunteers make across the UK, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank our dedicated group of volunteers who work on the Supporting Active Engagement project.
