Getting on: a manifesto for older people in a networked nation

Despite older age being the best time of life to be using the Internet, more than 5.7 million UK over-65-year-olds have never been online. Internet access should play a key role in successful ageing and help build links across generations and geographies for the UK’s older people, yet millions remain excluded from social, financial and developmental opportunities that the vast majority of the UK population now takes for granted.

This report builds on the recommendations in the Manifesto for a Networked Nation2 with recommendations for partners in all sectors to ensure all older people can enjoy the benefits of new digital services that 30 million adults in the UK now use on a daily basis
