On 15 July, the Brussels government adopted its Regional Support Plan for Single-Parent Families (French-Dutch).

Through the Digital Inclusion Coordination, the BRIC, together with other regional stakeholders, has been asked to set up digital transition actions targeting women and disadvantaged people in particular. In fact, the Brussels-Capital Region has nearly 65,000 single-parent families, 86% of them headed by women.

The aim of the Regional Support Plan is therefore to provide a coordinated and effective response to the needs of single-parent families, particularly single women with children, and to activate as many regional levers as possible in order to develop innovative actions to help these households.
The focus will be on access to digital services and the acquisition of digital skills to facilitate the social and economic integration of single-parent households, whether for job-seeking or for the optimal organisation of their daily lives.

These actions are part of the Digital Appropriation Plan 2021-2024 (DAP), whose aim is to help citizens to take ownership of digital technology by focusing on the accessibility of the tools, training from a very young age and supporting society towards a universally accessible digital transformation.
