To support the inquiry, Good Things Foundation, the Health Foundation and the King’s Fund joined to convene a diverse group of people with a shared interest in tackling digital exclusion and health inequalities. In August, supported by the Health Foundation, Good Things Foundation published a briefing paper, Digital exclusion and health inequalities.
The paper shares learnings from the workshop and gives an overview of digital exclusion and its relationship to health, social and economic aspects of people’s lives, and how the pandemic has impacted on this. You can read more at the bottom of this email.
What’s next for the inquiry?
Over the coming months, we will publish two further working papers and will be speaking at a number of events – all of which we will continue to share in these regular updates for the remainder of the year. As part of our wider Healthy Lives work, next month we will publish a long read on young people and further education as well as report that explores the roles of Directors of Public Health during the pandemic.
