Given the current COVID-19 environment we have temporarily disabled our ‘feedback’ feature. We apologise for any inconvenience.

The Digital Inclusion Alliance Aotearoa (DIAA) was established in July 2018 to foster socially inclusive communities where everyone has equitable opportunities to meaningfully engage with digital technologies, and benefit from the use of them.

We aim to enhance the confidence and capability of people living in New Zealand to engage online to advance their own education, employment, health and wellbeing as well as that of their whānau.

The Alliance acts as a catalyst for digital inclusion initiatives, by working with local communities, not-for-profit organisations, business enterprises and government agencies to pursue a shared digital inclusion vision.

We invite all organisations or individuals sharing our values: Partnerships, Inclusivity, Open and collaborative, and Manaakitanga; and our purpose in working to achieve a more digitally included community is to become a partner of the Alliance.
Service Description
Service Description
DORA (Digital On-Road Access) was set up in 2012 with support from InternetNZ to provide a mobile learning centre in Christchurch following the 2011 earthquake. DORA was subsequently used to support Stepping UP programmes on the West Coast and Digital Seniors in the Wairarapa.

Since July 2019, DORA has been touring the country providing free Digital Banking classes to anyone in the community. DORA can comfortably seat up to 10 adults at any one time. The onboard equipment is powered by solar charged batteries, and internet access is provided by both terrestrial wireless networks (3G and 4G), and in more remote areas, by satellite. This enables DORA to operate at any location in New Zealand that is reachable by road.
