Foundation for Digital Creativity


The Foundation for Digital Creativity is a not-for-profit organisation with a mission to remove barriers and ignite inspiration to enable everyone to bring about social good through the use of digital technologies.

As a Community Interest Company we’re advancing the education of everyone, particularly in the fields of electronics, computing and engineering to inspire future generations to create, invent and learn. Our programmes are centred around adults and children motivated by curiosity and the desire to understand how technology and engineering innovations can positively impact on issues relevant to them.

Launched in 2017, we’ve brought together our backgrounds in engineering and education to remove learning barriers and build accessible programmes to solve real world problems for more people.

Exciting news for 2019
