Tech for Good

Tech for Good

One way we are investing in the development of social outcomes through technological solutions is through the Tech for Good Programme, in partnership with Comic Relief. By doing so, we are also investing in the digital skills and capabilities of the organisations involved. We are committed to sharing their journey and ideas so that others can learn from their experiences.

After two successful co-funding rounds in 2017 and 2018, we have extended our joint commitment to the programme until 2021.

2019

The Tech for Good Programme 2019 will fund up to thirteen not-for-profit organisations to develop or scale up digital products or services with grants of up to £48,000 over a period of nine months. Projects will also have access to support from experts and advisors, plus the opportunity to collaborate and share learning with other organisations in the cohort.

Apply by 25 March 2019 (12 noon GMT), and visit the Tech for Good Hub for more information.

2018

In June 2018, thirteen organisations were awarded up to £47,000 each, alongside a programme of support: Addaction, The Children’s Society, The Developer Society, Elizabeth Finn Care, eQuality Time, Hestia Housing & Support, Hope Support Services, Playphysio, Samaritans, Spice Innovations, STEM4, WellChild and WESC Foundation.

We know that digital development requires distinct working practices and for this reason we adapted our model of funding to also provide an intensive package of support for grantees.

Lasting for nine months, the projects included:

  • A two month soft development phase (July to August 2018)
  • An intense four month hard development phase (September to December 2018)
  • A three month launch phase (January to March 2019)

Visit the Tech for Good Hub to learn more about these initiatives, and read more about why we’re supporting this fund here.

2017

In June 2017, ten organisations were awarded up to £50,000, plus access to tech experts, mentors and support, to deliver a tangible development in their Tech for Good projects:
Alexandra Rose, Bristol Braille, DePaul UK, Disrupt Disability, Oxfam, Shelter Scotland, Sign Health, The Well, WESC Foundation and Women’s Aid.

We are also pleased to share what we learnt in the Tech for Good 2017 Evaluation Summary.
