Get Online Week is a digital inclusion campaign from the Good Things Foundation to give everyone the chance to find the support they need to improve their digital skills and get motivated to learn more.
A lack of digital skills and access can have a huge negative impact on a person’s life, leading to poorer health outcomes and a lower life expectancy, increased loneliness and social isolation, less access to jobs and education. If the last two years have taught us anything, it’s how vital digital skills are to our wellbeing and safety.
The theme of Get Online Week this year is ‘Get online. Get connected.’ Getting online confidently, safely and affordably has never been more important. The pandemic has shown it is now essential for everyone to be able to connect with friends and family, access essential services, learn and work from home and keep up with the latest news.
