Another Olympic race

But there's another sprint to get 1.8 million people using the internet by the end of the Olympic year.

There are still too many people in the UK missing out on what the internet offers - information, advice, jobs, contact with friends.

  • 9 million adults in the UK have never used the internet
  • 4 million of these are the most socially disadvantaged
  • 6 million of these are 65 years old or over

TimeBank is one of the 900 partners so far that have signed up to help get this group to the finishing line. We're busy supporting volunteers to help older people, unemployed people and Muslim women get to grips with technology.
