There's less than one week to go until the 9th annual Get Online Week. Will you be joining in this year's campaign?

On Friday 31 July 2015, we visited Mayer Hall in Wirral, Merseyside, to speak to Big Lunch Extras participants about how they can use digital tools to make planning, organising and promoting community events easier - and more fun!

We had a fantastic day and met some really great people who are all keen to do even more in their communities.

Are you a ‘do-er’ who makes good things happen in your community? Tinder Foundation’s annual digital inclusion conference is back for 2015, and we’d love to see you there!

Bringing together local community partners, national organisations and thought leaders to take a broad look at all things digital, we’ll be discussing everything from digital for life to digital for democracy.

Taking place on Wednesday 25 November at the BT Centre, near St Paul’s in London, this is the fourth year this event has taken place and it’s shaping up to be the best one yet!

The ninth national Get Online Week is coming! From 12 - 18 October the annual digital inclusion campaign will once again hit towns and cities across the UK, and we’re pleased to say that registration is now open.

Get Online Week will be 2015’s biggest digital inclusion campaign and this year, it’s encouraging people to see how the internet can make almost anything a little easier - from banking to shopping; ordering prescriptions to booking holidays!

Has someone you know made a huge difference to others through a digital project? If so, it’d be fantastic for them to receive well-deserved recognition for their work, so why not nominate them for the TalkTalk Digital Heroes Awards?

Since these awards started, many small and local projects from across the country have been recognised and all the winners were people who brought about positive social change in their community through the power of the internet.

Do you work for a small charity and would love to see your team rewarded for their good work? This week is Small Charity Week - a campaign that’s perfect for celebrating and raising the profile of the small charity sector.

Running from 15-20 June, the week is organised as a series of activities and initiatives, supporting thousands of small charities that make a huge difference to vulnerable communities every day.

Next week (1-7 June) is Volunteers' Week, an annual celebration recognising the fantastic work carried out by millions of volunteers across the UK, and as part of the festivities Just Act will be holding some live online chats.
