Safe, secure, inclusive Tech4Good
Your needs, your data, your connections, our social purpose
If we are going to leverage digital technology to aid individual, family, and community wellbeing development to best effect then we need an approach that puts the interests of social purpose above all else.
We want to mobilise socially enterprising "tech for good" activity to support the development of resilient and sustainable local economies in which more people are included, meaningful jobs are created, and our natural environment is protected and regenerated. In an unique approach that:
Is a not-for-profit and member led cooperative, leading the development of technology solutions and services entirely focused on delivery of social value and benefit to the user community
Shares power in research, decision-making, design, delivery, and evaluation.
Prioritises relationships to establish social connections and trust among participants, stakeholders, and organisers.
- Uses participatory approaches that encourages people to join and express themselves in what-form works for them, through visuals, kinesthetics or oral approaches, to compliment written, presentational or traditional processes.
- Build capability by ensuring participants are supported and encouraged to adopt new ways of doing, learn in the process and have their voices heard, founded on a principal everyone has something to teach and learn.
Not for Profit Sector Tech
leveraging tech for more good.
The Tech4Good community has a mission to amplify the social impact of non-profit organisations by leveraging technology.
We can help with the difficult task of qualify the tech opportunity in business plans and bids for funding, and once successful with your bid, help you to secure access to the right and most cost effective resources for your delivery.
Design guided by the living experience.
Delivering fit for purpose 'social solutions' better succeeds when people, communities and organisations engage the 'living experience' of people to guide the co-design process.
Bringing many years of experience in solutions design, development and delivery, we offer a range of skills and expertise to help social innovators, entrepreneurs, community initiatives or projects to leverage tech 4 more good.
Agile and iterative
Establishing processes for continuous improvement.
We frequently cannot start with all the answers in advance, so we leverage value of what is learned as we more forward, to revisit design and refine, and establish a process of continuous improvement.
Being agile in response to change and iterative in delivery of solutions ensures risk to delivery of social return on investments is minimised, and delivery of positive outcomes and benefits can be frequent, and many.
A new approach to get the solutions we need.
In the structures we create, success in our social, economic, ecological and consequently wellbeing development efforts increases when we enable autonomy and invest in learning, and inclusivity becomes achieved by decisions becoming made when there are no remaining "paramount objections", that is, when there is informed consent from all involved (every-one has a say).
