100% Digital Leeds

Good Things Foundation has partnered with Leeds City Council to develop 100% Digital Leeds - a new digital inclusion movement for the city.

The movement brings together a wide range of organisations with a shared goal – to reach the most digitally excluded people in the city and help them to understand and benefit from digital.

Across Leeds, up to 90,000 adults still lack the basic digital skills they need to participate in today’s world. People who are offline are missing out on all the benefits that the internet can provide - from helping them to find work and save money to keeping in touch with friends and family.

The 100% Digital Leeds movement is taking a community approach to tackling digital exclusion with a supported network of local organisations at its core.

The 100% Digital Leeds Network is constantly growing and sits within the national Online Centres Network. The network receives support from the team at Good Things Foundation, as well as capacity building support from a dedicated Digital Inclusion team at Leeds City Council.

Good Things Foundation is acting in a consultancy role to support Leeds City Council with programme design and development, throughout the first year. A key aspect of Good Things Foundation’s role is to provide strategic guidance to ensure sustainability and expertise in impact assessment and evaluation.

 

Good Things Foundation and Leeds City Council are committed to improving the digital confidence and skills of Leeds residents, so they are happier, healthier and better off.
