About Good Things Foundation

Good Things Foundation has a vision of a world where everyone can benefit from digital. We established in Australia in June 2017 when we won a contract from the Department of Social Services to establish and support a network of local partners to help older Australians better use the internet. This network includes community organisations, public libraries, housing, local charities, and many more.

Good Things Foundation supports the network with a range of resources, online training, network events, dedicated network coordinators, an online forum, and a helpline. Good Things Foundation works with any partners, large and small, who would like to help build a social movement to support Australians by improving their lives online.

Get Online Week 2018

Good Things Foundation is bringing Get Online Week to Australia for the first time from 15-21 October 2018.

Get Online Week is a national community campaign that has been operating in the UK for 12 years, where last year it reached more than 45,000 people. The campaign helps people to learn new skills and start a journey towards thriving in a digital world. Get Online Week Australia will see organisations across the country hold local events to encourage their communities to #Try1Thing new online.

Community organisations can now register to get involved in Get Online Week. By registering, we will provide you with support including event ideas, social media templates, marketing materials and more!
