The NSW Government is developing the first Digital Inclusion Strategy in our state.

In today's rapidly evolving world, not all members of our community have been able to fully embrace the online age, leading to a growing digital divide.

For example:

  • 60% of Australians feel they can’t keep up with rapid changes in technology.
  • $66 million was stolen by online scammers from Indigenous Australians, culturally and linguistically diverse communities, and people with a disability in 2021 alone.
  • 46% of Australians say the rising cost of living has affected their ability to get online.

The NSW Digital Inclusion Strategy will look at how everyone in NSW can access, afford and engage with digital technologies, services, and resources – regardless of where they live, their age, race, gender identity and socio-economic status, or if they have a disability.

We want to understand what challenges people face accessing digital technologies, services and resources and how they can be supported to overcome them.
