Getting Citizens Online


The internet is a wonderful resource and it's for everybody.  However, almost one in  seven adults living in Ireland have never used the internet.

​The Department's 'Digital Skills for Citizens' Programme focuses on supporting and empowering citizens to participate fully in Ireland's digital economy and society.  The Programme includes the 'Getting Citizens Online' scheme. This scheme provides digital skills training for citizens who have never used the internet with a view to removing a key barrier to digital adoption.
