Everyone Thrives Online – Portsmouth & South East
Good Things Foundation is delighted to invite Online Centres in the South East, with a specific focus on Portsmouth, to apply for funding to deliver the Everyone Thrives Online project in partnership with Google.org. Delivery for this round of funding runs from Monday 21st October 2019 to Friday 16th October 2020, and we’ll be offering three contract sizes that Online Centres can apply for: £1,250, £2,500 and £5,000.
Currently 11.3 million adults in the UK lack one or more of the basic digital skills, and 7.4 million of these have some skills but are considered limited users of the internet. Good Things Foundation, funded by Google.org, are creating a new programme of work to help 30,000 individuals who use the internet in a limited way gain the confidence and digital skills they need to 'thrive online' - becoming regular, confident, capable and safe users of digital technology.
The 'Everyone Thrives Online' programme aims to help adults achieve positive life and work outcomes, particularly around employment, by supporting them to understand how digital skills can change their life, and give the practical skills and knowledge to build their confidence to do so.
We’re seeking Online Centres who currently support employed and unemployed learners, those who are socially excluded, or those who run small businesses, to deliver projects that help people progress in their career to realise positive life and work outcomes through a programme of tailored support. Online Centres will be expected to engage learners, assess their skills gaps and provide face-to-face and online support. If you’re interested in applying for grant funding, please read our guidance document. Applications will open at 9am on Monday 23rd September and closes at 5pm on Friday 18th October.
