Helsper, Ellen (2009) The ageing internet: digital choice and exclusion among the elderly. Working With Older People, 13 (4). pp. 28-33. ISSN 1366-3666

So, what about the digitally-disenfranchised who, for whatever reason, do not want to or are simply not able to use or access the internet? In this next article, Ellen J Helsper explores the profile of these groups and examines what service providers and commissioners should bear in mind.
