Les PIMMS : un concept innovant participant à la réduction de la fracture numérique | off 2012

Les PIMMS : un concept innovant participant à la réduction de la fracture numérique | off 2012 | Urban Life | Scoop.it

Les PIMMS sont des lieux d’accueil gratuits et sans rendez-vous qui facilitent l’accès des habitants aux services publics et répondent à toutes les questions liées à la vie quotidienne : remplir sa déclaration d’impôt, comprendre sa facture d’électricité ou de gaz, optimiser le budget familial, faire des économies d’énergies,… mais aussi tout simplement acheter un ticket de bus ou un billet de train,…
Situés dans des zones urbaines sensibles ou en zone rurale, les PIMMS s’adressent le plus souvent à des personnes en situation de fragilité.
Aujourd’hui, il existe 44 points d’accueil PIMMS sur le territoire français. Ce sont 280 salariés qui accueillent chaque année, plus de 450 000 personnes et vont à la rencontre de 130 000 personnes à leur domicile ou dans les transports en commun.
