Get Online Week is a digital inclusion campaign organised by Good Things Foundation.
3.7 billion people are digitally excluded worldwide (ITU, 2020). Over 13 million people people in the UK lack the digital skills they need for work (Lloyds Consumer Digital Index, 2020). 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.
