People Participation Digital Community

We're building a community of service users and digital partners because we believe that digital empowerment leads to patient empowerment. Find out how we are bridging the digital divide by empowering service users to engage digitally with their own healthcare and lives.

Our main goals are to:

  • establish roles and forums where people can gain support
  • simplify access to devices, connectivity, and safe spaces to go online
  • create Digital Inclusion Zones, where people can go to learn
