Libraries for Everyone is a new accessible-by-default model that provides access to print and the internet in public libraries, for those who are blind, have visual impairment, dyslexia or low literacy levels.
Support for tourism infrastructure is vital, and investment in culture is a proven regeneration tool.
A vibrant local sports scene improves public health, economic development and community cohesion. We are helping councils build a lasting legacy from the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
We are helping councils tackle their challenges through:
- securing continued support for the Future Libraries programme
- helping councils to realise a 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games legacy that delivers wider benefits for the whole country
- supporting councils who are pioneering new and more efficient ways of delivering heritage services and share the lessons widely
- promoting digital inclusion and supporting the superfast broadband pilot areas.
