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 Make It Click 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 organisation 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.

Successful applicants 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.
