Our mission is to “Plug the Gap” between those who have access to the digital world and those that don’t. To provide equipment, training, and knowledge to allow individuals or organisations who are prevented from taking part to access the digital environment and to do so safely and with confidence.Support our mission
Plug the Gap Services CIC (a.k.a. Plug the Gap) is a social enterprise launched by Osiris IT, dedicated to closing the digital divide.
So many people are being marginalised and left out due to a lack of access to technology and the internet. Plug the Gap works to decrease the amount of people being left behind in this digital-first society we live in today.
