Social inclusion is about making sure that everyone - regardless of age, income, or ability - has the same opportunities, helping to level the playing field for all.
It’s a complex issue made up of many different causes. We know there’s no single answer to all of these issues but we believe digital can help.
Whether voting, searching for jobs, accessing health services or connecting with the community around you, no one should be left behind and no one should be left without a friendly face and support to improve their lives.
82% of the people we support are socially excluded.
What are we doing about it?
At Good Things Foundation, we are using digital as an enabler to solve social challenges and to change lives.
We look at the many different ways we can improve levels of social inclusion through digital means, focussing primarily on
- Health and wellbeing
- Employability and benefits
- Financial literacy
- Essential skills
Online Centres all over the country are helping people to overcome social exclusion and isolation by providing a safe place, an open door, and a holistic approach to solving their problems. We know that people who engage with digital through local support can begin to connect to their communities, and overcome some of the challenges they face.
Our social inclusion programmes powered by digital help people to gain the wider skills and opportunities they need to participate fully.
