This report follows from the Social Exclusion Unit’s PAT (Policy Action Team) 15 report on access to and use of information and communication technologies (ICT) by people living in deprived areas. PAT 15 emphasised policy concerns about the ‘digital divide’ and ‘information poverty’ in deprived areas. Among other issues, it highlighted the paucity of information on access to, and usage of, ICT by people from Black and minority ethnic (BME) groups in these areas, concluding that there was an urgent need for comprehensive data to be collected in deprived areas in order that a baseline position could be established.
