Digital Inclusion

Digital Lifelines Scotland has committed to improving digital inclusion for people who use drugs, including building confidence, skills and motivation alongside access to devices and connectivity.


The programme has reiterated in response to the recommendations of the Drug Deaths Taskforce a goal of reaching a minimum of 2,000 people who are at risk of drug related harm and 200 staff with the digital inclusion element of the programme funding provided.


The Digital Inclusion workstream activity, led by delivery partners SCVO (Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations) and Simon Community Scotland, ensures that the programme:

  • Scales up the approach to date, building on learning from the grant funded organisations.
  • Offers a package of supporting resources to participants
  • Provides a framework for benefits realisation
  • Enables a heightened profile for the evidence that this works
  • Engages with another sector partner in the delivery of the programme
