Building Digital Skills in Regional Areas Pilot
Supporting regional communities to become digitally capable and confident.
In 2021, Good Things Foundation Australia partnered with Wesfarmers on a six-month digital inclusion pilot to support regional communities to become digitally capable and confident.
Three community organisations in our network located in regional Western Australia and Victoria took part in the pilot program to increase digital capability in their communities. They were supported by Good Things Foundation with personalised support and small grants to deliver digital literacy classes to adults of all ages.
“Our learners have been really positive and very thankful to have a place to get help with technology and getting online.”
– Anastasia Eastwick, Digital Mentor at Merredin Community Resource Centre
