The Get Online campaign is now in its ninth year and aiming to reach tens of thousands of people. Throughout the country, thousands of events will take place to support people to do more with digital -from buses to churches and from cafes to community centres.
Last year, 80,000 people were reached by Get Online Week. Over the last nine years, the campaign has raised the profile of the benefits of being online and given a real focus to the digital inclusion calendar.
