How effective are Charity IT Programmes?
New research conducted by CTT, Lasa, IT4C, WCIT and Adapta Consulting.
CTT teamed up with fellow technology charities Lasa, IT4Communities, and the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists, as well as third sector advisors, Adapta Consulting, for the first time, to conduct research into the effectiveness of charities’ IT programmes.
The results, released today, show that cost is still a barrier for charities in adopting IT. Notably the research showed that 67% of organisations surveyed employed no IT staff.
This is the first time that the five organisations have collaborated to this level and the project marks the start of what we hope will be a fruitful relationship between our organisations!
