The WCIT Charity is responsible for the charitable activities of the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists and is honoured to have been supported from the beginning of its journey by IT industry leaders such as Dame Stephanie Shirley.
The Charity’s mission is to use IT skills to make a difference and change lives. In its brief history, it has achieved a huge amount including helping to set up two independent charities - the Charity IT Association and Lifelites – as well as establishing, in partnership with the Mercers’ company, a brand-new school in Hammersmith. It has supported hundreds of individual causes through grants totalling almost £4.5 million.
