Hyve volunteer as digital ambassadors!

Wired Sussex

As active members of the Wired Sussex community, Hyve attended a breakfast session back in November 2019, which focused on collaborating with local Brighton-based charities. The session consisted of talks from three highly engaging speakers, a Q&A session, coffee and croissants - what’s not to like?

Tech for Good

One of the speakers was David Scurr, Founder of Tech for Good Brighton - a community group which uses digital technology to create positive social impact locally. 

The group is supported by Citizens Online, a digital inclusion charity and is also part of the global NetSquared and Tech for Good movement of innovators in more than 70 cities around the world. NetSquared gathers together tech leaders and funders, nonprofits and activists, and everyone who is interested in using technology for social change.

After meeting David and chatting with various local businesses about what they were already contributing, and how else we could help, the Hyve team went away with a lot of food for thought. As a tech company with digital expertise in Brighton, we knew it was a great opportunity to get involved with the local community and see what we could offer.

Digital Surgery

Fast forward a few months, and we have been invited to the Tech for Good Breakfast Club on 13th February as digital ambassadors! 

This event is a surgery-style meet-up, for anyone in the local social sector looking for digital support. Experts in web design & development, social media strategy, SEO, video media & podcasts, and of course, cloud hosting, will be present.

Remarkably, 17 million people working in the UK do not have basic digital skills, and a staggering 6 million people (11% of the population) cannot even turn on a device! Charities, community groups and social enterprises are amongst those who are lacking the most in these skills - as they don’t necessarily have the funding for training or to hire employees with specialist skills. 

Here to Help

So, this is where Hyve can help! We are experts in cloud hosting and already work with a range of charity customers to provide high-performance, robust and secure cloud services at discounted rates.

If you’re not sure where to start or which type of hosting your charity requires, come along and chat with us next week - we’d be delighted to help. You can find out more about the event here.
 

We look forward to meeting you! If you are a charity, community group or social enterprise who requires cloud hosting services, please get in touch on 0800 612 2524 or email sales@hyve.com.
