UK's top IT volunteers named

Doing it for charidee

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

IT4Communities, which links charities with IT professionals who volunteer time and expertise to help organisations sort out technology projects, or start new projects, has released the shortlist for its 2008 awards.

There are three finalists in four different categories: Best IT volunteer; the project which showed best impact on the organisation; the project which showed most innovation; and the project which was most accessible.

Vying for the award for best IT volunteer will be Scott McCabe, who sorted out a website and email access for homeless charity Cambridge Link-Up; Clive McClure who created a staff training and client database for Westminster Advocacy Service for Senior Residents; and the mysterious, Stig-like volunteer known only as Alan who helped set up an IT training programme for EverybodyOnline - Edinburgh.

The shortlists for the other categories are here.

IT4C is funded by the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists. If you are interested in volunteering, there is more information here.

The winners will be announced at a ceremony on 19 February. ®
