We believe in a world where everyone benefits from digital.
Since 2013 Good Things Foundation has been working with the NHS and other partners to bring digital health inclusion to those people who are most excluded and for whom digital can have the biggest benefit.
An estimated 12.9 million people in the UK do not have the full essential digital skills needed to make use of health services.
These people are most likely to be socially excluded, hard to reach, and suffer from poorer health.
There is a 19 year difference in healthy life expectancy between the most deprived and the least deprived communities.
We have been developing 20+ pathfinders that model ways to engage and support the most excluded groups across England.
For the communities that we serve, digital can provide access to relevant information and health professionals and peer support, help manage conditions and improve health and wellbeing indicators.
