Digital Safety and Inclusive Change at Work create strategic partnership.

Inclusive Change at Work CIC and the Digital Safety CIC, two social enterprises committed to fostering positive change are proud to announce that they have entered a strategic partnership.  By coming together our aim will be to leverage our collective knowledge, skills, and resources to create a more inclusive and digitally secure environment.
