Getting online

Let's get as many people online as possible

Over 10 million people in the UK don't use the internet.

These people are missing out on the opportunities and benefits of being online.

Getting the best deals, finding new jobs, making friends ... 

We want to make it as easy as possible for people to get online.

Do you know somone who's not making the most of the internet?

How you can help

We've created a series of guides that can help you spread the word about how great the internet is.

Why not choose one that could inspire a friend or a member of your family to try the internet? It could open up their world. 

You could also run your own event and help people in your community with their digital skills.

We’re developing a guide to help you run your own ‘techy tea party’. Check back here soon for a toolkit to get you started.

Other tips to get your friends and family online

There are lots of other ways you can help spread the digital word.

The Go ON and BBC Webwise sites are great places to start.

And you can search the UK Online Centres site for free internet and IT training courses to inspire your friends and family.

Good luck!
