We're on a mission to help small charities and community groups gain essential digital and data skills backed by the right tech to achieve their goals.

Because we believe in strong, adaptable communities confidently using data and digital to meet their needs and aspirations.


Our approach

Our approach is value driven and lived in the way we deliver our services and activities. We are:

  • Relationship centred: we build meaningful relationships based on respect, honesty and care
  • Capability-minded: we are approachable and patient, encouraging learning by doing, where no question is a silly question
  • Committed to value: we meet people and teams where they are, finding the most appropriate and forward-thinking solutions
  • Enthusiastically curious: we are always discovering new techniques and tools, offering engaging ways of learning and bringing fun and playfulness to all we do
  • Community spirited: we foster collaboration and togetherness, connecting people with shared experiences for the good of the whole community, leading when appropriate
