CAS backs SCVO on digital exclusion

22 Aug 2017

Citizens Advice Scotland has given its support to today’s report by the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations about digital exclusion

Citizens Advice Scotland has given its support to today’s report by the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations about digital exclusion.

CAS spokesman Mark Patterson said,

“CAB advisers across Scotland have been telling us for years that many of those who need public services have difficulty accessing that support digitally. We believe that lack of access to facilities remains a problem, but there is no doubt that lack of skills and low confidence are also significant barriers.

“We are just completing a new piece of research which will detail our own evidence on this, so we hope to publish that in the next few weeks and we look forward to working with SCVO and others to further highlight these issues and begin to develop solutions."

The SCVO press release and report are on their website.
