Good Things Foundation annual review
24 Jun 2014
Good Things Foundation launches its Annual Review 2013-2014 today, including a summary of the changing digital inclusion landscape, the projects, pilots and partners we’ve been involved with, and the many and varied ways the organisation aims to make sure good things happen through digital technology.
From our Home Access pilot to our Get Online Week and Start Something marketing campaigns, the Widening Digital Health Participation programme to the Online Basics Assessment, new Learn My Way courses to new thinking on how we become a digital nation by 2020, corporate volunteering to community capacity building, 2013-2014 has been a year of both innovation and consolidation for Good Things Foundation.
Key to all of Good Things Foundation’s activities is the network of 5,000 UK online centres who remain the organisation’s unique selling point, allowing us to deliver learning at scale with the flexibility to respond to local needs.
Good Things Foundation’s Chief Executive Helen Milner explains: “The past year has really seen us grow, develop in new directions and build our relationship with the local organisations who are so vital to what we do. Over the past year, we - and the UK online centres network - have continued to support some of the hardest to reach people in society, with 82% of learners coming through the network meeting one or more indicators of social exclusion.
“The ability of centres within the network to help those that can’t be reached by other means continues to be vital to supporting so many of those most in need. And although I say this every year, I think the year ahead is going to be even more significant. While digital inclusion will always be at our heart, we are continuing to diversify, growing our work in adult learning and supporting the centres in our network to have a greater impact in their communities, not just by supporting digital inclusion activity but in many other ways too. Watch this space.”
