About this speaker

Alex Yoxall is a Digital Inclusion & Engagement Officer for Wigan Council’s Digital Services Team. Alex leads the council’s digital inclusion offer, which comes in the form of the TechMates programme, Tablet Lending Library and National Databank - which all aim to combat the three main pillars of digital exclusion – which are lack of digital skills, no access to a Device and no access to connectivity. Alex also works alongside partners within the council’s Digital Communities Partnership, which sees local groups, organisations and professionals join together regularly to share resources, information and best practice in the fight to bridge the digital divide. Alex’s previous background is within the voluntary sector as an Activities & Engagement Officer, with a focus on working with volunteers to run services that better the local community.
