Working Together: Charities and Organisations

We partner with and support other charities, government organisations, the NHS and other organisations that share our vision to create a digital world accessible to all.

In 2023 we helped 463 educational establishments, 1,189 corporate organisations, 197 public sector organisations, and 385 charities and community partners empower disabled people and older people through technology.

How could we support your charity or community group?

Free disabilities sessions

Choose from our set of seven free sessions about different disabilities. We can deliver any of our informative, interactive sessions to your charity or community group, to educate your group about disability, and technology.

Book your free session

NB - if you're part of a larger organisation looking for group training, choose from our range of inclusion and accessibility courses to suit all roles.

Small charities

Do you want to help your service users access the digital world and empower them to use technology in their everyday lives? Refer them to us via our online form, contact us to find out more or arrange for a volunteer to join one of your group sessions.

Nationwide charities

We can help your service users embrace the digital world through our volunteer support and free resources. If you are providing devices to your users, our Tech volunteers can be on hand with crucial digital skills advice, support and hands-on training. Perhaps your groups would benefit from some digital training?  

Find out how we partnered with Age UK to help older people use technology with confidence and achieve their everyday goals.

We also have dedicated resources collections on Parkinson'sDementia, Hearing Loss, Multiple Sclerosis and Dyslexia.


Local governments and councils

We believe in the power of local collaboration. By pooling local resources the individuals in the region can easily find and maximise the support on offer. We are also available to discuss supporting any funding bids for digital inclusion projects. Contact us to find out how we can support digital inclusion in your local community.

Health and social care

As more health and social care services move online our volunteers can be on-hand to guide disabled and older people through this process, increasing their digital confidence and helping them to access services online. If you are providing devices to your users our Tech volunteers can be on hand to for crucial digital skills advice, support and training so they can get to grips with the device.
