The idea was to see how improved digital health literacy could improve the health outcomes for groups most likely to experience health inequalities.

As a result of the programme 59% of learners report feeling more confident to use online tools to manage their health, 65% feel more informed and 52% say they feel less lonely with 62% saying they feel happier as a result of social contact, an important indicator for overall wellbeing.
