Hello <<First Name>>
I’m very pleased to announce that Good Things Foundation has been appointed by the Office for National Statistics to support the delivery of the next Census in England and Wales.
In 2021 the Census will be ‘digital first’ and available through an online platform, and we will provide support to ensure those without digital skills or digital access can participate through our Online Centres.
By working with community organisations in the Online Centres Network, we’ll be able to provide support that recognises the other barriers faced by those who are offline, including unemployment, low confidence and disability. We’ll also be able to create the opportunity for people to keep building their digital skills, through other programmes offered by Online Centres.
This is going to be a really exciting opportunity for our network so watch this space as there will be the chance for you to get involved closer to the time.
Helen Milner OBE
