YORSwitch customer: I just wanted to thank you again for your speed and efficiency in enabling me to join the scheme so quickly and take advantage of the 'reduced' rate. I have been very anxious about refilling the oil tank but this scheme has eased some of that concern. Many thanks
Fiona - Electric Tricycle User, Age 51. 'I purchased an electric tricycle as I have Multiple Sclerosis and can no longer ride a bicycle due to poor balance and mobility issues. I have found that being out on my tricycle that my fitness has improved and it has had an impact on weight loss. With the pedal assist I am still able to pedal and use my legs which is important to keep my muscles active, reduce numbness and I am also able to cycle further including hills and this also helps with fatigue as I tire easily. I have enjoyed being able to access local rural areas which has had a positive impact on my mental health and wellbeing, especially during this difficult time due to Covid-19 and being isolated as a clinically vulnerable person. This has meant that I have been able to get out of the house and feel safe whilst exercising. There are a lot of support groups on social media where I have met other like minded cyclists who have offered invaluable support and advice and I have met up with another lady tricycle rider as a riding companion.'
Mrs Surfleet a registered customer of the car scheme thanked HWRA for an excellent service and also to personally thank the driver, Terry for his help and assitance in providing transport to her medical appointment.
Wheels to Work North Lincolnshire Scheme - John from Grimsby ‘I joined the scheme in 2021 after hearing about it from a family member. I was in need of transport to get to and from work as I had my motorbike stolen and was not able to replace it. As a short-term arrangement I was relying on a family member to take and pick me up from work. For me the key benefit of the wheels to work scheme was that it provided me with a scooter that enabled me to get to and from work, it also gave me back independence and freedom. I would definitely recommend the scheme and I have done so to friends who are need of transport to get to work. Don’t’ underestimate the scooters as they are extremely reliable . My experience of the scheme was great, and I was glad that I was successful in receiving a scooter via the scheme’.

Humber and North Yorkshire Digital Inclusion Network Project

Membership of the Digital Inclusion Network

We have 100 members from the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector, the public sector, and the private sector. We also have over 250 newsletter subscribers.

We encourage new members so please join today and you can subscribe to our monthly newsletter.

Members are kept informed of digital inclusion developments and are invited to events where we showcase good practice, encourage collaboration, offer training, and hear from exciting speakers.

We encourage members to consider the Core Principles for Digital Inclusion from the Integrated Health and Care Partnership.

Barriers to digital inclusion

Connectivity - poor mobile or broadband coverage, speed, and signal.

Equipment – individuals and families may not have mobile phones, laptops, or tablets.

Skills – some people have no digital skills. Other have a lack of knowledge of or confidence in using some or all digital tools.

Staying safe – concerns about online fraud and abuse.

What we do

Our two Coordinators are on hand to offer tailored one-to-one support to organisations interested in offering digital inclusion activities.

We promote social tariffs and signpost people to free data. We are always keen to hear from Broadband providers about how they envisage supporting the digitally excluded.

We signpost people to potential grants for technology that they can use at home. We let people know where they can use or borrow technology in the community.

There are many providers of free digital skills training, so we spread the word about what they do and facilitate training sessions.

We refer you to credible organisations such as Action Fraud, Child Exploitation and Online Protection, Hourglass and Refuge offering support with online safety.

What’s your story?

 We are keen to hear from anyone who has a good story about how getting online and/or developing digital skills has changed their life for the better.

Similarly, we are eager to hear about the challenges people face in getting online and making the most of the digital world.
