2019: ALL DIGITAL Week led by Good Things Foundation and Upskill Digital

Good Things Foundation has been involved in the campaign since its very beginning. The campaign itself was inspired by their Get Online Week run in the UK by the Foundation and their Online Centres Network.

Good Things Foundation is proud to support ALL DIGITAL Week and encourage their community network of 5,000 Online Centres to represent the UK in a Europe-wide digital inclusion movement.

With more than 11.3 million people in the UK alone still without all the digital skills they need to make the most of the internet, campaigns like ALL DIGITAL Week – and the Good Things-managed UK Get Online Week – can play a vital role in reaching those in need.

The UK’s leading digital inclusion charity will be shouting about the importance of ALL DIGITAL Week to all their audiences through email and social media channels. Additionally, they’ll be sharing stories of people who have seen the benefit that improved digital skills can have, thanks to work Good Things Foundation has in communities across the country.

They’ll also be encouraging their 5,000 strong Online Centres Network to deliver events during the week and register them as part of the ALL DIGITAL Week campaign. The network is working in thousands of local communities and reaching those most in need of improved digital skills, making them ideally placed to support the campaign at a local level.
