Nominet has partnered with Go ON UK to champion digital skills and digital inclusion. As part of that commitment, over the next year Nominet will be supporting digital skills initiatives that deliver real benefit to small businesses across the UK.
Russell Haworth, CEO of Nominet said, ”We’re delighted to be the first National Partner for Go ON UK. We believe the internet is a powerful force for social and economic good and we make it our business to maximise its positive impact. We know from our own research that over a quarter of small businesses still don’t have a basic website and over half are concerned about competing with larger organisations in future without an online presence. We’re passionate about giving them the skills that they need along with the confidence and tools to get online, and we’re really looking forward to working with Go ON UK next year to deliver some exciting initiatives.”
Rachel Neaman, CEO of Go ON UK CEO, said: “Nominet are a vital part of the UK’s internet infrastructure, and I am delighted that they will be joining the Go ON UK partnership. With their expertise in the digital economy and digital infrastructure they will be an invaluable National Partner. Everyone at Go ON UK is looking forward to working with Nominet to bring the transformative power of the internet to families, communities and businesses across the UK.”
Go ON UK is a digital skills charity that works with partners across the public, private and voluntary sectors to identify opportunities and develop programmes that improve Basic Digital Skills among people and organisations.
