Good Things Foundation Australia mobilised hundreds of community organisations in our national network to host local digital skills events during Get Online Week. This year’s campaign theme ‘Get online. Get connected’ reflected the importance of digital skills in enabling people to work, learn and keep in touch with loved ones during the pandemic.
As this year’s campaign was affected by COVID-19 restrictions in several states, community organisations hosted events both online and in person.
We upskilled our event holders with special webinars, guides and resources including fun digital skills event ideas and best practice tips on hosting online events for people with low digital skills and confidence.
To support their participation, we also provided grant funding, downloadable marketing packs, learner tip sheets and social media templates to reach new people in their community.
In 2021, we worked with 450 community organisations across Australia alongside our corporate, government and community partners to spread the Get Online Week message far and wide.
