Social Impact

Improving the lives of young people in a digital age

The internet and digital technology have the power to transform lives by creating opportunities and providing support where it’s needed most. But they also have the power to leave young people behind. Our Social Impact programmes provide support and opportunities to tackle some of the most important digital issues facing young people in the UK today.

We believe in a UK that is connected, inclusive and secure

Our Public Benefit strategy drives this ambition, formalising our social impact with a focus on initiatives that promote greater connectivity, inclusivity and security. We work to create lasting improvements by targeting a range of emerging issues born out of our digital age, such as online safety and digital inclusion. We also address long-standing social challenges in which technology can play a pivotal role.
