Digital inclusion is key to Good Things Foundation’s work helping socially disadvantaged people transform their lives
2.5 million people in Australia don’t have the basic digital skills they need to thrive in today’s world. We work hard to help people become digitally able, active and equal so they can be healthier, happier and better off.
We make a real impact by working with partners, engaging people through local support and ultimately transforming people’s lives through digital. Our local network of partners in Australia engage people with community-based learning, offering digital skills as part of a package of support based on an individual’s need.
Digitally excluded people lack a voice and visibility in the modern world, as government services and democracy increasingly move online.
What’s more, it’s those already at a disadvantage - through age, education, income, disability, or unemployment - who are most likely to be missing out, further widening the social inequality gap.
