ImpactAlpha, May 1 – Almost 13 million people in the U.K. lack basic digital skills. Another 40% are ‘living on the edge’ financially.

We Are Digital, with a head office in England’s midlands, provides digital and financial training to more than 100 housing associations, councils, corporates and central government.

A £1.5 million ($1.96 million) financing round was led by U.K venture capital firms Si2 Fund, Triplepoint and and Ascension Ventures. Wayra UK and ClearlySo also participated.
