ThoughtWorks has announced an initiative to support non-profit organisations and social movements with free tech advisory and development support.
ThoughtWorks’ new Social Change Lab will provide this support for up to four not-for-profit organisations (NFPs) in the UK, with NFPs invited to apply to be considered for the scheme.
The lab is part of ThoughtWorks’ global Social Change strategy, which, it says, ‘focuses on actively contributing to the positive social impact that technology can have in creating a fairer, more inclusive and equitable society’.
ThoughtWorks’ Social Change Lab will offer two packages, designed for different sizes of organisation.
Applications will close on 9 July, 2021, with advisory and development packages commencing in October.
Organisations must be based in the UK, registered as a charity, CIO, CIC or co-operative, have experience of using digital technology in their operations and have the resources and infrastructure to take forward the strategies created with the ThoughtWorks Social Change Lab.
