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.

2018

Paul Hamlyn Foundation is delivering this grant programme in partnership with Comic Relief for the second year in a row.

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 have adapted our model of funding to also provide an intensive package of support for grantees. The projects will last for nine months and will include:

  • 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)

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.
