Imagine your life without the web. Quite tough, right? Well, for 11 million UK adults and thousands of businesses and charities, this is a reality.
They don’t have the Basic Online Skills to explore the internet’s vast and varied opportunities. That means no emails to friends and family, no search and no sharing personal info online – such as applying for jobs, booking tickets, or Twitter.
Britain’s businesses and charities need help too. Just 1/3 of small and medium sized businesses sell goods and services online and only 1 in 4 charities can accept online donations.
Go ON UK is the UK’s Digital Skills Alliance. We’re inspiring and supporting people and organisations that want to share their digital skills with others.
