What is Tech for Good?

Tech for Good describes a movement and a community of people who care about harnessing technology to effect positive social impact.

It’s about seeking technological solutions to make things better for people, society and the planet and at the heart of this lies the commitment to putting people first. The number of people and organisations thinking and operating in this space is increasing and the type of the activity they engage in is constantly evolving.

Who are we?

The Wales Co-operative Centre is a not-for-profit co-operative organisation that supports people in Wales to improve their lives and livelihoods.

For more than a decade we’ve been helping people to gain fundamental digital skills so that they can access information, services and jobs. As well as our work on digital inclusion, we are working with the charity and social business sector to help it harness digital technology for social good.
