In addition to our sponsorship programme to support grass-root community groups, we use our experience as skilled IT professionals in our local communities, supporting the next generation of the STEM workforce, equipping them with the tools, qualifications and experiences necessary to benefit the community of the future.
We are proud to support and sponsor local community groups and sports clubs nominated by our members. From Brownies, to football teams, choirs to gymnastics clubs, over the last year have sponsored kits for more than 300 different clubs and groups. Each month our Charity Committee donates to the charities supported by our members through their own fundraising and volunteering. Every CGI member is encouraged to spend one day each year volunteering to support local initiatives or charities, making a significant difference to the communities in which we live and work.
Dream Connectors is a global, member-led programme in which all members are invited to submit their ideas for community projects to improve the wellbeing of our local communities through the positive impact of technology. The winning ideas receive full backing from CGI and all the support needed to turn the dream into a reality through funding, technology, and member volunteers. Recent UK Dream Connectors programs have included member volunteers delivering tech skills workshops in local primary schools and a returnship programme for people returning to work after a period of absence.
