Get Online Week

Our annual week-long campaign of digital inclusion.

Get Online Week is Good Things Foundation’s annual digital inclusion campaign.

Beginning in the UK in 2007 and introduced to Australia in 2018, Get Online Week is a week-long annual campaign that sees thousands of events take place across Australia and the UK, giving everyone the chance to find the support they need to improve their digital skills.

Last year, more than 1,000 Get Online Week events were held across Australia – in person and virtually – helping people get online and get connected.

This year’s Get Online Week campaign takes place from 17-23 October 2022.

Through Get Online Week, we support people to connect with friends and family, stay safe online, learn how to better use their devices, find reliable health information and find an affordable internet connection.

We believe everyone deserves the opportunity to safely participate in our digital world and no one should be left behind. Through the Be Connected Network and with the support of our Government and corporate partners, events and activities take place in hundreds of communities across Australia every year to spread the Get Online Week message.

Get Online Week is a campaign by Good Things Foundation Australia. Go to www.getonlineweek.com to learn more.
