About this project

Since 2016, Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Comic Relief have joined forces to support the best use of Tech for Good in the UK, building on our learning from our Innovation Labs initiative and initial Tech for Good funding pilot.

We also hope to inspire others to join and grow a wider tech for good ecosystem by sharing our approach and learning here.
