Charity Work

channelcentral’s Charity Committee was formed following a company-wide meeting in February 2016 and two charities have been supported since its creation.

Our Charity Selection Criteria

Staff feel it is important to support two charities, local to each of channelcentral’s offices: Braintree, Essex and Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire. As a small company, channelcentral wants to focus its efforts, working with smaller charities to make a greater difference to their operations. Staff have also wanted, as far as possible, to connect each charity’s interests with the company’s own skills and expertise.

Our Charitable Giving

Various fundraising activities take place throughout the year, with the company matching staff fundraising for selected events. In addition to monetary fundraising, each staff member can take one working day a year, away from the workplace, to undertake charitable work meeting the criteria of channelcentral’s charity policy. Staff can also submit a proposal for surplus computer equipment to be donated for charitable causes, where the donation will meet some, or all of the company’s charity selection criteria.

Our Charities

We are delighted to support SpecialEffect and SnapCharity! Here is a little information about each of them:

SpecialEffect focusses its work on the gaming community. It adapts computer hardware and software to enable gamers of any age to be able to enjoy the same activities as others regardless of their disability. Their technology is also critical for use in hospitals so that patients can communicate with medical staff.

SNAP focusses its work on supporting children (and their families) up to the age of 25 with Special Educational Needs. They have a well-equipped Centre for children to make new friends and take part in activity sessions while parents can have a break or take part in a training or advice session.

Gareth and Louise had the opportunity to visit SpecialEffect and try out some of the amazing software and hardware adaptations that enable those less fortunate to be able to play their favourite computer games. A truly inspirational day!
