From 14-20 October 2019, Good Things Foundation held the 13th annual Get Online Week campaign. This report details the impact of the campaign, the scope of activity across the country and some of the partners and organisations that helped to make it all happen.
The largest and longest-running digital inclusion campaign in the UK, Get Online Week has reached more than 500,000 people since 2007. And the experience and expertise behind this success is being shared internationally, with the campaign launching in Australia in 2018.
However, there are still 11.9 million people in the UK without all the essential digital skills needed to make the most of the internet and 4.1 million people who are completely offline. To reach these people, Get Online Week 2019 recruited community organisations across the UK to hold events that helped individuals find the support they need to improve their digital skills.
