The Good Things Foundation is hosting an online roundtable on Monday16th May from 12-2pm.

We’re taking a closer look at what can be done to ensure older people’s voices are heard in the digital inclusion arena.  This feels more important than ever given the continued shift to online services, rising costs of living, and ongoing effects of the pandemic – which are all disproportionately impacting older people.

If you’re interested, we’d love you to join us virtually on Monday 16th May 2022 (12-2pm) alongside organisations across the UK working with older people, as we discuss how rapid digitisation during the pandemic has impacted on older people’s access to services.

What does government – UK, nationally, regionally, locally – need to do now to support older people with digital inclusion?

How can we ensure older people’s voices are heard in the digital inclusion arena?

Our CEO, Helen Milner, will be chairing, and members of Good Things Foundation’s Connect Up Community of Practice, as well as our Older People’s Panel, will be there so discussions are grounded in the experiences of people at the heart of the issues.

This year’s theme is Loneliness. Loneliness affects many of us at one time or another and more so during the pandemic. Factors such as social distancing and lockdown meant that it felt more important than ever to consider how we are connecting with others. This week the Keeping Well NWL service is encouraging everybody to take time out to talk to someone about how they’re feeling. 

Sometimes talking to a professional can be helpful too – the Keeping Well service provides free, confidential support. If you’re feeling lonely, low, anxious, stressed, depressed or finding it difficult to cope then they are here to help  via Live chat (Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm), Telephone: 0300 123 1705 or Email:

For Mental Health Awareness Week this year, we’re raising awareness of the impact of loneliness on our mental health.

One in four adults feels lonely some or all of the time.

The longer we feel lonely, the more we are at risk of mental health problems.

By understanding different mental health problems and learning new skills and coping strategies we can start to tackle mental health problems together.

Our series of government-funded online courses is your perfect starting point to do just this…
