New South West Technology Volunteers Site now Live

Updated: May 4, 2023


Technology Volunteers has announced the re-launch of the re-branded new website. The platform exists to connect talented folk in tech with underfunded charities, groups and schools in the UK who don't have the funds or technical knowledge to transform or improve their digital processes and systems. In doing so the volunteers allow charities to spend more time doing the valuable work they need to do to make the world a better place. Since the relaunch in March this year [carried out by IT Services & Consulting company AND Digital] there have already been over 200 tech professionals sign up as volunteers and there are currently 17 live projects for charities such as Citizens Advice Bureau and Penny Brohn.


“There are some awesome initiatives available on the market who inspire us daily” says Alicia Teagle, Founder at Technology Volunteers “But we were really looking to have specialist focus on technology volunteering for individuals or companies who want to give back and gift their skills to underfunded charities across the UK .... at that moment Technology Volunteers was created.”


“Having a project that we can work on that’s socially positive can be really motivating and reassuring to us as developers,” says Kyle Lawson, Product Developer at AND Digital. “To know that what you are working on is reinforcing something good and giving back to the community.”


Originally founded in 2018 by Alicia Teagle, Technology Volunteers has already helped over 30 charities in the Southwest, including donating over 3,000 laptops.


Already well known in the Southwest, the next step for Technology Volunteers is to expand across the UK, helping to close the digital skills gap within the charity sector.


If you are a volunteer looking to donate your time and help give back, or alternatively, if you are a charity looking for tech and IT support please get in touch at: hello@tehnologyvolunteers.org
