Could the National Databank help you?
What is it?
Good Things Foundation developed the National Databank to help people experiencing data poverty to access the internet. The National Databank distributes free data to people through community organisations.
What is data poverty?
If you are unable to afford an internet connection to meet essential needs, you may be experiencing data poverty. Data poverty means that you can't do things like apply for a job online, bank online or access essential services, due to having no internet connectivity.
Community organisations can give free data to people who are 18+ years old AND from a low income household. They must also qualify in one or more of the following statements:
- Have no or insufficient access to the internet at home
- AND/OR have no or insufficient access to the internet away from the home
- AND/OR cannot afford their monthly contract or top up.
The local centre is Normanton Library. To find out more visit the library (Almond Street, Derby DE23 6LX) and speak to a member of staff, or you can contact them by:
