Good Things Foundation

Fix The Digital Divide:

We're all for digital, so shouldn't digital be for all?

Good Things has launched a major national campaign that draws attention to digital exclusion.

and the incredible way people's lives change when they become digitally included.


Make digital a reality for all. #DigitalForAll

What is the National Databank?


In our digital age, internet access is necessary to stay connected with loved ones, access essential services,

and seize new study or job opportunities. 


Unfortunately, not everyone has equal access to the internet. Vulnerable individuals who are already experiencing multiple inequalities often struggle to afford it. 


Good Things Foundation is committed to ensuring everyone can benefit from internet connectivity through affordable and safe access. That's why they've created the National Databank. Imagine a food bank, but instead of food, it provides free mobile SIM cards for those who need internet connectivity. 


The National Databank is a solution for people experiencing data poverty or living on a low income. They can access mobile data from their local National Databank via their local member A1 Community Works, which is based near Bedale in North Yorkshire and will help you get and stay connected. For up to 6 months of free calls and texts in the UK or with a data aim card for up to 24 months 

How does it work? With the support of Virgin Media O2, Vodafone, and Three, the Good Things Foundation has created the National Databank. National Digital Inclusion Network members, like A1 CommunityWorks, can apply for data packages anytime. Once approved, National Digital Inclusion Network members receive, activate, and gift free mobile data to people in their community who need it most. 


This initiative is a step towards digital inclusion. Support the National Databank and help us ensure that everyone has equal access to internet connectivity. Together, we can bridge the digital divide and positively impact people's lives.
