Makes grants to projects which fall under one of the four priority areas:

  1. Enhancing opportunity for young people through more effective education
  2. Improving the quality of life for the disadvantaged, disabled or socially excluded
  3. Helping charities and other not-for-profit organisations get the best out of IT
  4. Improving the understanding of IT and its capabilities to the wider public

The WCIT also provide pro-bono IT support. If you require independent strategic level pro-bono help for your IT project, contact they Charity Coordinator on the email provided to discuss how they can help.
