Get Online Week takes place 14th-20th October and community councils can get involved, show their support and highlight the work they do in their communities via their websites and social media channels.
The events sees partners, volunteers and communities come together to make sure that everyone can take part in the digital world. Thousands of events will take place in hundreds of communities, providing a friendly and welcoming way to help people take the next step on their online journey, building skills and improving lives along the way. There is also an online map which makes it easy to find events taking place across the UK.
Stats from the Good Things Foundation who run Get Online Week show that 5.3 million people have never been online in the UK and there are 11.9 million people who don’t have the essential digital skills to help them in their day to day lives or in their jobs.
Get Online Week is the UK’s largest digital inclusion campaign and was established in October 2007. Since then the campaign has grown into a week-long annual celebration, with thousands of events taking place each year in centres and more unusual locations, bringing digital skills and know-how to everyone.
