Collective action is how we accelerate impact to overcome the UK’s digital skills gap.

Together, the member community, made up of individuals from a diverse set of sectors, bring with them skills knowledge and experience they want to share with others.

We are building a self-sustaining community, where it’s easy for members to identify areas of common interest, to connect, collaborate and share more easily on the solutions that make the biggest impact to digital confidence and capability.

Our approach to community is co-created with members, to understand needs, and test what works.

As a member, you can access:

FutureDotNow Community Space

Our online workspace allows you to connect directly with others, share ideas and keep up-to-date on the latest information from across the community. Using the popular platform Slack, our community space is limited to our members. If you’re already part of the coalition, just complete this very short form to get connected.

Virtual meet-ups

A series of online sessions, which offer something for everyone. Hear from others, as they showcase their digital skills approach. Work collectively on a ‘Learn & Solve’ to solution an approach to a thorny challenge. You can find recordings of previous meet-ups and links to future events on our Events page.

KIT (Keep in Touch) meetings

Speak with a member of the team on your approach to digital skills, talk through your plans and how they community can help. We use our DIGI framework to get the most from the conversation. New for 2022, we’re starting to book these calls in with all of our coalition members but if you’ve not heard from a member of the team yet, get in touch to book your first KIT.

These test and learn pilots, will see us work with other organisations on some of the specific challenges of closing the digital skills gap. If you’re interested in getting involved, complete this short form.
