We know that the digital capability of the UK will be driven by three things: infrastructure, services and skills. It’s this last one that we’re focusing on. Ensuring everyone has Basic Online Skills is simply fundamental. Put it this way: there’s little point in having a top-notch digital infrastructure and services if 1 in 5 people can’t make use of them.

We will have achieved our vision when all individuals, SMEs and charities in the UK have the Basic Online Skills to fully participate in everyday economic and social life.
Right now across the country, all kinds of individuals and organisations are helping people get online and learn basic skills. At Go ON UK, we want to unite these separate efforts across sectors to make sure no one gets left behind. It’s all about working together so we can get the UK to a better place even faster – and you or your organisation could be a vital part of this.
