Digi-ID is on a mission to address the challenge of digital inclusion and low usage of digital technologies amongst people with intellectual disabilities. Through a co-creation process with over 200 people with intellectual disabilities across our EU consortium in Ireland, the Netherlands, France and Sweden we are developing an innovative digital skills education programme delivered via an accessible solution/app. E-health applications have become more prominent, especially since the COVID-19 pandemic. Without digital skills citizens with intellectual disabilities will experience much poorer health and wellbeing.

At the heart of Digi-ID is our Citizen Advisory Panel, seven people with intellectual disabilities employed to work with us for key decision making milestones.

Our goal is to empower people with intellectual disabilities with the knowledge, skills and confidence to manage their health and social inclusion needs digitally to ensure they are not left behind in our digital age.

Digi-ID is a work in progress pilot and we are currently in the research and development phase, stay in touch to know what’s coming in the next few years… Great things are coming!
