South Yorkshire (1): Bridging the “Digital Divide”
This project looks at the challenges with one of the hardest demographics to address, those who potentially do not have traditional forms of identity documentation (e.g. passports and driving licences) or digital footprints (e.g. bank accounts or electronic records on the credit referencing data) and therefore find it harder to gain access to transcations which require a higher level of identity verification or access methods of electronic payment. This small-scale test was developed in the context of how we might address the “digital divide”.
