Following on from our last blog on the Digital Skills Award, we asked Anna Geraghty, Head of Marketing, Communications and Training at Tinder Foundation for a few words on their support of the Tech4Good Awards, specifically the Community Impact Award. In case you missed our last blog, you can find it here.
“This is the fourth year we’ve supported the Community Impact Award and we’ve always been amazed by the great activity happening locally to help improve the lives of individuals and communities using technology.
“Over the past years, we’ve seen awards for the owner of a local fish and chip shop who has regenerated her community by establishing a coffee shop and training centre, as well as an organisation delivering Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for people with mental health programmes, using digital technology so many people can access the help they need.
“The quality and innovation in the category has been incredibly high, and we’re looking forward to seeing many more great entries this year.”
