Together with Lloyds Banking Group, Good Things Foundation has devised a digital inclusion programme that will have an impact on supporting people with low financial and digital literacy. There are 16.2m people in the UK with low financial capability and 3.1m people who have low financial and digital capability.
Working with Lloyds Banking Group, the Foundation is creating and funding a network of 100 centres who will support learners to improve their digital and financial literacy skills, including the IT Centre in Castle Douglas. Centres will use courses on Learn My Way that have been developed in conjunction with Lloyds Banking Group, including on managing money online, online banking and staying safe online.
As well as delivering through the Online Centres Network, Good Things Foundation will also deliver 500 face-to-face sessions to Lloyds Bank customers.
Good Things Foundation are also supporting Lloyds Banking Group digital champions, helping them to find opportunities to share their skills in the community through the Online Centres Network.
