There are too many people in the UK today that can't or don't want to use the internet. It's these people that are at significant risk of being left behind as technology advances and becomes ever more integral to daily life.
Go ON UK wants to understand how we can reach these people to demonstrate the benefits of the internet, and in turn motivate them to get online and learn Basic Digital Skills. That's why we have joined forces with Croydon Council to launch an ambitious year-long, digital skills programme that will test, learn and share new ways of reaching those most in need of support.
Go ON Croydon will pilot a series of innovative and creative projects that will encourage local residents and organisations across the London Borough of Croydon to get online and improve their confidence and digital skills.
We will use the learning we gain from the programme to identify the approaches that can be replicated and scaled across the UK to accelerate an increase in Basic Digital Skills capability.
Go ON Croydon brings together a broad range of national organisations, local businesses, community and faith groups, charities and voluntary sector organisations including the Go ON UK Board partners, Croydon Tech City, Croydon College, Jobcentre Plus, Croydon MIND, Happus, Boxpark, the Citizens Advice Bureau, L&Q Housing, LBS Older Peoples' Services and many more.
Together we will work to spread the message of the benefits of Basic Digital Skills across Croydon, through initiatives and activities that will boost the digital skills of employees, customers and communities locally.
We want to improve the lives of Croydon residents by showing them how they can benefit from gaining better digital skills and embracing technology.
We hope that those who haven't used the internet before will give it a go and discover a wealth of new opportunities online through Go ON Croydon.
