Get online week has been going since 2007, when UK online centres first marked out a date in October to bring digital inclusion to national attention. Since then the campaign has grown into a week-long annual celebration, with thousands of events taking place each year in centres and more unusual locations, bringing digital skills and know-how to everyone.

Mark 13-19 October 2014 in your diary, when the Get online week will once again celebrate digital inclusion around the UK.

There were 95,000 visits to our learning website www.learnmyway.com during the month of October and nearly 15,000 registrations, while 2,300 people launched our Let’s get digital product, created especially for the campaign to help people get a taste of what the internet could do for them.

As always we had lots of fantastic partners supporting us with Get online week, including the Post Office, Fujitsu, TalkTalk, EE, BT, many of whom put on their own Digital Champion events to really get into the spirit of the campaign.

Thanks to everyone - individuals and organisations - who took part in the campaign throughout October. We couldn't do it without you! Here's to Get online week 2014!
