National Data Bank scheme


Adult Learning Wales has partnered with the Good Things Foundation, who oversee the National Data Bank scheme. The National Databank is providing free data to 500,000 people, in partnership with Virgin Media O2, Vodafone and Three.

The UK National Databank brings free mobile internet data connectivity to people who can’t afford it and who are often also experiencing multiple inequalities in today’s society. 

The aim is to remove the barrier faced by those in the UK, who are not able to afford to stay connected.  The scheme will help people who are cut off from contacting loved ones, from attending online job interviews, from finding essential health or other information online.

  • Be 18+ years old 
  • ANDbe from a low income household

  • Has no access or insufficient access to the internet at home
  • AND/ORhas no or insufficient access to the internet when away from the home 
  • AND/ORcannot afford their existing monthly contract or top up 

If you are a learner with Adult Learning Wales and would like us to gift you data, please complete this short registration form.

Please note that data may be limited to a 6 month supply, based on availability and demand.
