Event Details

Charities need help with their IT systems and they need you! In one weekend, you can make a difference by using your IT skills to solve a problem which would make charities' day to day operations more efficient.

Some of the potential activities you could be doing may include:

- modernising a charity's website
- provide guidance around an existing technology platform which a charity could benefit from
- optimising an existing IT system
- adding new functionality to an website/application
- developing a proof of concept for a charity to trial to support a funding application

The end result of these activities will make a huge difference to a charity.

So why take part?

This is an opportunity for you to:

- use your skills for good cause and make a difference
- network with like-minded people
- test or try out new skills
- get outside of your comfort zone

Just one weekend's worth of your time can be hugely beneficial to charities.
