Our vision is a world where everyone benefits from digital
We are a social change charity, helping people to improve their lives through digital. We tackle the most pressing social issues of our time, working with partners in thousands of communities across the UK and further afield.
We design and deliver social inclusion and digital inclusion programmes through a UK wide network of community organisations, providing a range of customised and unique digital learning resources, to help socially and digitally excluded people across the UK, Australia and other countries to improve their lives.
Good Things Foundation is funded by Government Departments, corporate organisations, local authorities and trusts and foundations to deliver large programmes of work to improve lives. Many of our corporate funders and some local authorities have commissioned us to run volunteer schemes where we place their staff or local people as volunteers with our centre partners.
Demand from our funders and potential funders to run volunteering schemes with our centres is increasing. To date we have not had a dedicated resource to manage these schemes, but they have been run by the relevant programme teams in each case. We're looking to develop a more systematic, standardised and scalable offer, and so are looking for advice on how to deliver and manage volunteering programmes in the most effective way, with the ability to scale up based on future demand. We want to bring together tools and resources that are already available, alongside best practice in the sector, and our experience to date.
