Trafford Conservatives join campaign to boost internet usage by disabled and older people

Trafford Conservatives have backed a campaign between Trafford Council and Socitm (the membership association for local authority IT professionals) to help disabled and older people use the internet. They have become partners of Go ON Gold, an initiative to raise awareness of and remedy the barriers preventing hard to reach groups from participating fully in new technology such as smartphones, the internet or digital TV.

Through opening access to new technology, we are determined to ensure that services for all our residents are at the centre of everything we do.”
