Digital inclusion

The Digital Inclusion Program is working to ensure that Western Australians and their communities can confidently and safely enjoy the opportunities and benefits of digital technologies in their everyday lives.

Digital technologies and the internet play a significant part in our lives, enabling communities and people to learn, grow and connect. Whether looking for a job, starting a business, interacting with government, accessing information and education, or exploring opportunities across the state, nation and indeed, the world – there is a growing need for everyone to be able to use technology.

All Western Australians deserve to participate in our digital future. Digital inclusion seeks to build the capability of Western Australians to confidently and safely enjoy the opportunities and benefits of digital technologies and services.

The Office of Digital Government (DGov) has formed a working group to build collaborative partnerships with communities, local and federal government, industry, and community services to effect locally-sustainable change.

This approach is outlined in the draft Digital Inclusion in Western Australia: A Blueprint for Achieving a Digitally-Inclusive State to leverage new investment opportunities and build on existing initiatives and programs in order to embed digitally-inclusive activities into the WA Government’s digital transformation.

The draft Digital Inclusion in Western Australia: A Blueprint for Achieving a Digitally-Inclusive State has been released for public consultation.
