What we do

Our vision is a world where everyone benefits from digital. We support people to feel confident going online.


How we work

We make a real impact by working with our network of community partners to provide local digital inclusion support that transforms people’s lives.

We build capacity in community organisations through specialised training packages, grants and program support, and work with partners in government and business to develop programs that make a real impact in people's lives.

We strive to ensure the digital divide is acknowledged by decision-makers and raise the voices of those who are digitally excluded.

Real people. Real impact.

Learn about how our work in the community is helping everyday people build their digital skills and confidence.

We run innovative national programs and creative campaigns to close Australia's digital divide.
