Get Online Week

Get Online Week began in 2007 as an initiative to bring digital inclusion to national attention in the UK. Since then, the campaign has grown into a week-long annual celebration, with thousands of events taking place each year, bringing digital skills and know-how to everyone. In 2018, over 750 events were held in Australia for the nation’s first Get Online Week.

In 2019, Get Online Week was held on 14-20 October. This year, over 1,000 events were held across Australia during Get Online Week, helping people with limited digital skills get more out of life online.

Through the Be Connected Network in Australia, Online Centres Network in the UK, and hundreds of other venues - bank branches, employment centres, libraries and more - thousands of events took place in communities across both countries, helping everyone move forward on their digital journey.
