|'Get Started' Campaign Launched|
13 May 2003
Andrew Pinder, the UK's e-Envoy and the e-Minister Patricia Hewitt have launched in London today a major national campaign to encouage people to get online.
For the next six weeks, the £370m network of over 6,000 UK Online centres will be the focus of a multi-media publicity drive which the Government hopes will prompt reluctant members of the public, particularly those from disadvantaged social groups, to try out the internet for the first time.
The Office of the e-Envoy, which is co-ordinating the campaign, is working with several private and voluntary sector partners to signpost individuals to their nearest participating centre for a free introductory 'taster' session.
