Why we chose Community TechAid

As a Technical Consultancy, we have seen how essential technology has become to how public services are delivered and how necessary digital access is for the public and businesses to stay connected, learn, keep well, access help and advice, and be engaged in society.    

 

Thousands of South London residents are still digitally excluded to some degree. It is an issue that affects many different people, including children and young people, the elderly, disabled and vulnerable adults.

 

We were seeking to work with a local non-profit organisation to help facilitate the donation of hardware from our customers. Items needed to be securely wiped and then re-purposed to local residents, schools and charities.

We chose to support Community TechAid through a corporate partnership not only because of our shared values but because they were able to very easily demonstrate the impact that their service was having on our local community, as well as how much more still needed to be done.
