82% of the people we support are socially excluded

Thousands of organisations are part of our movement in the UK

Over 3.5 million people worldwide have been supported to gain digital skills since 2010

We inspire people and shape the future so we can all thrive in a changing digital world


Our partnerships

We're collaborators. Since 2010, we've built innovative digital social change programmes in partnership with global philanthropy, corporates, and government.

We co-design free online learning resources to help people take their first and further steps online

We're builders. We build networks, we build learning products and we build awareness. The things we build are the platforms we use for raising awareness of the digital divide.

Learn My Way A free platform for digital learning, providing digital skills and increased confidence to those supported by the Digital Inclusion Network.

Good Things Foundation Learning Australia Our Australian online learning platform has specially designed courses and curated free resources to help people improve their digital skills.

We work hard to improve digital capability for all


Our campaigns

We're campaigners. People who are digitally excluded people lack a voice and visibility in the modern world, as government services and democracy increasingly move online.

The people behind the movement

We’re deeply invested in our team and in turn, our team make us what we are. Throughout our history we've been a staff-owned non-profit mutual, and were one of the first staff-led charities in the UK. Every member of our team has a say in how Good Things is run.
