Renfrewshire Council

Digital Strategy 2016-2019

"In a Digital Renfrewshire we will make sure everybody has the opportunity to reach their digital potential and maximise the wider economic, educational, health, social and cultural benefits for all".

This Digital Strategy: Digital Renfrewshire sets out a vision and approach to tackling digital exclusion in Renfrewshire.

It is supported by an action plan that will be refreshed on an annual basis to reflect the fast- growing digital society we find ourselves in.

The Digital Strategy has been developed in response to The Tackling Poverty Strategy and The Renfrewshire Digital Participation Plan (2016). The Digital Participation Plan recommended the need for an overarching Digital Strategy to coordinate existing activities, share resources and work in partnership towards a shared vision.

The challenge is complex as digital is cross-cutting but through consultation with partners it has been agreed that digital participation is at the core and the key supporting areas of work have been prioritised into four workstreams:

  1. Tackle digital exclusion by removing the barriers to Digital Participation.
  2. Enable digital participation through provision of a strong digital infrastructure of Connectivity.
  3. Becoming an efficient, effective and sustainable council by developing our Digital Public Services.
  4. Grow Renfrewshire's Economy by maximising the use of digital technology and tackling the growing digital skills gap.
