Why we do what we do

Hidden Middle – The Scale Of Digital Inclusion (Future Dot Now)
Hidden Middle – Usability Testing With NHS Digital

3.7 billion people are digitally excluded worldwide (ITU, 2020). Over 13 million people people in the UK lack the digital skills they need for work (Lloyds Consumer Digital Index, 2020).

A lack of digital skills and access can have a huge negative impact on a person’s life, leading to poorer health outcomes and a lower life expectancy, increased loneliness and social isolation, less access to jobs and education. The pandemic has catalysed technology-adoption maturity and a decline ushering in new AI (Artificial Intelligence). If the last two years have taught us anything, it’s how vital digital skills are to our wellbeing and safety and no individual, organisation, institution or government will escape the demand for new and improved products and services with the human at the core.
