The Fife Centre for Equalities recently contributed to a study by the Open Data Institute (ODI) in to how digital public services adhere to the legal requirements which are set around discrimination.
Many public and private services are now moving towards becoming provided digitally and with the increase in technology in our lives, this is more than likely to rise. The report published by the ODI explores how protected characteristics of people using the digital services are being collected, to make it possible to tell how they might be affecting excluded communities.
Further details from the ODI and the report can be found here.
