The Tech4Good Awards 2014 is looking for the individuals and companies that are leading the way in using technology for good. Whether that’s someone giving up their time to volunteer at a local school to ensure they have access to IT, or a nationwide programme giving access to training programmes for thousands of people. Here are the ten awards categories that you will be able to nominate your favourite charity, organisation or individual.
- Accessibility Award
Celebrating innovative technology that provides access to those with mental and physical disabilities.
- BT Ingenious Award

- Community Impact Award
Any individual or group that works tirelessly to make their community a better place. Whether that’s an inspiring local community project that uses computers and the internet to help people overcome disadvantage to achieve social change, or an online mentoring service that gives thousands of young people the chance to access advice on a range of subjects that impact their daily lives and their future.
