20/20 Trust provides Digital Inclusion leadership, research and programmes.  We partner with local communities to deliver Digital Inclusion programmes throughout Aotearoa, New Zealand.

Digital Inclusion has four interdependent elements:

Access: to affordable digital devices and access to affordable Internet where people live, work and play.
Skills: Confidence and competence with knowing how to use digital devices and the Internet.
Motivation: Understanding how the Internet and digital technology can help us connect, learn, or access opportunities.
Trust: Trusting in the Internet and online services; having the digital literacy to manage in the digital world; avoiding scams, harmful communication and misleading information so as to stay safe online, be confident and resilient.
