Code to support tech for good initiatives with free workshops

January 19, 2022

Organisations looking for innovative ideas to solve their biggest problems or improve digital service areas this year can now register interest in our free-to-access 'Make Change Fridays' workshops.

The workshops aim to help those with tech for good initiatives seeking solutions to challenging problems and could benefit from strategic direction - whether that relates to comms, digital platforms, positioning or strategy. 

We've recently trialled the workshops with LGBTQ+ charity Manchester Pride, providing strategic communications support for its 2022 marketing planning. 

Lizzy Holroyd from Manchester Pride:

"The team at Code were very insightful and generous with their time. They introduced a range of strategic and tactical comms ideas that has given us lots of impetus and a greater focus for our activities this year." 

Rob Jones, Managing Director at Code:

"This is our way of giving back and supporting tech for good initiatives that make meaningful change to people's lives and communities. 

"We have previously dedicated 10% of our time on Friday afternoons for our Computerlovers' personal development, but many felt that working on live briefs would be a more beneficial way to develop their skills. We're also passionate about supporting organisations like Pride that are making a real difference, and our team now have the option to support if they wish.

"We've developed time-effective and impactful methods to deep dive into our client's needs which we implement in our experience design and day zero workshops. Our 'light touch' Make Change Fridays workshops take elements of these methods to provide a boost of inspiration, direction and actionable ideas to shape future roadmaps.

"Our event space is also free to use by the local Manchester digital community to share ideas and collaborate. We hope this initiative is another way we can help businesses thrive this year."
