Synopsis

The Discover Digital project is coming to an end after a full year of multi-agency activity in Stoke-on-Trent to help close the digital divide.

This event will present an overview of the initiative, what it set out to achieve, how things changed along the way and finally the outcomes from the efforts that have been undertaken by the variety of partners involved.
