The Western Australian government has just released the What We Heard Report from the consultation on the draft in Digital Inclusion Blueprint. The report highlights the key findings from consultation with the WA community.
The consultation was based on 624 Western Australians and organisations from Albany to Kununurra, including the Cocos (Keeling) Island, South Hedland, Warburton, and Leonora. Results from the consultation discusses:
- Western Australians experience four main barriers to inclusion, which were connectivity, affordability, skills, and design
- digital inclusion underpins full participation in today’s society
- digital inclusion requires strong collaboration and partnership with WA communities, the community sector, industry, and government
The What We Heard Report will inform a final Blueprint and a program of initiatives to make Western Australia a more digitally inclusive State.
