Good Things launches Digital Inclusion Map

Now it's easy to find digital inclusion local help across the UK.

We're making it easier for digitlaly excluded pople to find you. Good Things Foundation's map and directory makes it very easy to search nearby to work out what help is at hand. The new map covers the whole of the UK and shows active Digital Inclusion Hubs (and local Databanks), who are part of the National Digital Inclusion Network. 

In Good Things' strategy, we said that by 2025 we want everyone to have somewhere local to go to get help using the internet. The launch of this map makes sure people can identify and access the support near them so that more people can experience the benefits of the online world. 

This help is so critical as the cost-of-living crisis keeps biting hard and more people need digital inclusion support – particularly with affording internet access. People shouldn’t have to sacrifice their internet access during this challenging time. 

Now, people can quickly and easily search for hubs delivering support in our three service areas: 

The National Databank

The National Databank is now operating in over 1,200 locations across the UK! The databank is like a foodbank but for data connectivity, giving free data to people in need. Not part of the National Databank yet? Apply to become a databank hub

Digital skills support – Learn My Way

Learn My Way is our free platform for digital learning. Digital inclusion hubs across the UK can support people to improve their digital skills though Learn My Way – ensuring that they have the skills and the confidence to get online. Learn My Way is great way for you to help people take their first steps into digital. 

The National Device Bank 

The National Device Bank refurbishes old devices and gives them to people struggling to afford them – paired with free data from the databank. As the numbers of devices are in the thousands (not tens of thousands) we’re not promoting this yet on the map, but hope to be able to soon as the Device Bank grows.

Good Things' strategic goal is, by 2025, to be supporting 5,000 local partners to help people to remove the barriers to digital inclusion. There are thousands of partners already on the map but we’d like every town, city, and community to show the help that’s on offer.

We’d really value your help to make sure we can reach as many digital excluded people as possible showing the free connectivity and free digital skills support on offer from thousands of local partners. We’ve created a series of communications packs to make it easy for you to promote this. The packs include a range of social media graphics to bring your posts to life!
