Supporting Get Online Week in the UK

If you’d like to support Get Online Week, there are lots of ways to get in involved and help promote the campaign.

We’re already working with key our supporters, the Department for Education and Lloyds Banking Group, and other partners across the commercial, government and voluntary sectors. This cross-sector collaboration will drive engagement and activity across the UK, so everyone has the chance to Try 1 Thing, and Get Online Week can help more people than ever before.

Get Online Week is an opportunity for your organisation to demonstrate your commitment to digital skills in the UK and help your customers better access online services and products with confidence.

We’d love to have you on board, and there are lots of ways to get involved:

Talk about Get Online Week

We know that not everyone who’s passionate about digital skills has the capacity to hold or attend an event. If that’s you, we’d still love you shout about Get Online Week and how important digital skills are. Why not:


Volunteer at events

Thousands of Get Online Week events are taking place all across the UK.

Our event map can show you what events are happening near to you and from there you can get in touch and offer the support of you and your team as Digital Champions during Get Online Week.

Volunteer needs will vary from event holder to event holder, so try to find out how you can best help and offer any specialist skills you have.


Hold an event

Reach out to those you work with, or people in your community and help them Try 1 Thing. Just grab a few laptops or tablets and invite regular customers, tenants or service users along for a digital drop in.

You could choose a specific issue (eg. “We can help you feel confident shopping online!”), or you could use it to help people engage with your online services. It could even just be a digital drop-in where you encourage people to come in for help with their internet issues.

Events can be drop-in sessions that invite new people in to troubleshoot their digital challenges; it could be an afternoon of digital competitions and quizzes that help internet beginners to improve their skills by finding the answers to questions. They could be themed events that invite people to find out how they can do more online to support their health, or research local history. There are no limits on how a Get Online Week can illuminate the possibilities opened up by getting online.

Register as a Get Online Week event holder and you’ll also receive an event pack to help you publicise your events and celebrate the campaign.


If you’d like any more information about Get Online Week or have ideas on what else you could do to get involved, we’d love to hear from you. Please get in touch with Chris Andersson on 07713 321 491 or on chris@goodthingsfoundation.org.
