Introducing Technology Volunteers

About this event

Technology Volunteers was founded by Alicia in 2018 after meeting with a charity who asked if she knew any software engineers to help with a project. As co-founder of Socially Responsible Recruitment (SR2) the answer was yes, of course! The problem with this scenario was the charity had no in house experience to support the project, and no budget to employ or contract someone.

Fast forward to today and the relaunch of technologyvolunteers.org from Alicia Teagle, supported by Sr2 and the team at and.digital in Bristol.

Technology Volunteers are on a mission is 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 our volunteers allow charities to spend more time doing the valuable work they need to do to make the world a better place.

Alicia Teagle from Sr2 and Gareth Hodgkinson from AND.digital will share their journey to launch, and a tour of the platform for volunteers and charities.
