This year we are official supporters of Get Online Week, which runs from 18 to 24 October.
Get Online Week is a global digital inclusion campaign managed by the Good Things Foundation.
The past two years have taught us how vital digital skills are to our wellbeing and safety. Current figures show that 2.5 million Australians are not online and less than 40% of our population feel confident that they can keep up with the rapid pace of tech changes.
Everyone deserves the opportunity to safely participate in our digital world and no one should be left behind.
You can support Get Online Week by hosting a digital skills event in your community, attending a local event, or helping a friend or relative to get online.
