Reboot UK

Reboot UK is a digital skills programme for multiply excluded individuals. The programme is focused on people who are at a disadvantage in society and in particular, who are affected by homelessness and mental ill health. 

Reboot UK is run by a partner consortium of Good Things Foundation, Homeless Link and Mind, and is funded by The Big Lottery Fund.

The Reboot UK delivery model embeds in-depth, personalised digital skills provision within specialist organisations that already offer a range of support services for people in crisis. Phase 2 is designed with findings from Phase 1 in mind. For this reason, we are promoting the use of peer mentors in delivery, and the use of progression interviews with clients. 

Individuals will be supported to realise a range of positive outcomes, including:


These resources were created at the end of Phase 1 delivery to help other organisations support individuals following best practice models.
