Our purpose


The WCIT Charity is a national charity with a City of London home. Our purpose is to use the power of tech for impact through digital inclusion, education, charitable, and public engagement initiatives across the entire UK.


Our work


The WCIT Charity works with a wide range of registered charities and not for profit organisations aligned with its purpose, who depend on external financial support and specialist skills to realise their IT initiatives.



A message from our Chair


Welcome to the WCIT Charity. Throughout the years, the incredible work we do has touched the lives of many, raised aspirations and empowered communities to get the best out of tech. Our strength lies in our unique approach.

By combining our grants with outstanding pro bono support, we can work with a cross section of communities and charities, supporting diverse, worthy causes and changing the lives of those in need, using the power of tech to create meaningful impact.

At the WCIT Charity, we want to build a better world for the future and technology is the vehicle that enables us to do so. As Chair of the Trustee Board, I am humbled every day to witness first-hand how our charitable giving has impacted the lives of many thousands of young people, people of different abilities and those left behind by society across the whole of the UK.

With your help, we can ensure that this impact not only continues, but grows for generations to come.

What our partners say:

“Thanks to the WCIT Charity, our new website launched in November 2020, and continues to make an impact - with great new areas for information created by services users and ease of use. You have also funded the essential tech development of the ITOK chatbot expansion and introduced us to key funders. With your help, we are providing a vital lifeline to more young people in desperate need of confidential, anonymous support - in the way they want and need it.”

Jo Youle, CEO at Missing People

“Honestly thank you so much for your help. Just being able to talk to someone with no judgement has been so good. It feels like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders.”

Feedback from a young person using Is This OK?

“WCIT Charity funding has helped  make a positive difference and enable individuals to use a computer, to get online which is a massive hurdle for people facing homelessness or unemployment.  It has helped our services users to build confidence, develop new skills and help escape the cycle of homelessness.”

Kushba Bibi, Employment and Skills Manager, Thames Reach

“Support from the WCIT Charity has been a huge factor in the growth and success of Code4000 over the past couple of years. Being a recipient of a grant from WCIT has meant we have been able to grow our core team and ultimately reach more people in custody, teach coding skills and reduce reoffending in the communities in which we work.”

Rod Anderson, Chief Operating Officer, Code4000 CIO

“With the WCIT Charity’s generous support we developed Molehill Mountain, Autistica’s anxiety app for autistic people. Thanks to the charity, we are giving autistic people the tools to understand and self-manage their own anxiety.”

Siobhan Shaw, Head of Trusts and Foundations, Autistica

“The ongoing and generous support from the WCIT Charity continues to assist Lifelites to change the lives of thousands of life-limited and disabled children every year.
