How you can contribute to Code4000

There are many ways in which you can support us with our mission to reduce re-offending through #teachingtech #changinglives.

Financial Donations

We are a small efficient, organisation with annual running costs of £200,000. For that, we provide a curriculum, the technical platform on which our students can learn to code, and a bespoke, pastoral and through the gate service for each of our students.

However, we are completely reliant on grant-funding, donations and the small service fee which we charge our host prisons. By donating to Code4000, you can help reduce the time we spend chasing funding, and increase the time we spend securing the positive outcomes for our students.

You can rest assured that every single penny donated to us is used to further the work we do directly with our students. Whether that's providing learning material, funding travel to appointments or employment, or paying for a member of staff dedicated to supporting them both in prison and in the community.

One-off or regular donations can be made on our Charity Checkout page by using the button below. For large donations, please contact our Regional Manager South, Tom Cella, at tom@code4000.org.

Donations of Equipment

Our students often leave prison with very little to their name yet they are all keen to continue their coding journey. We are always thrilled to receive donations of laptops, tablets, desktop PCs, and peripherals as it means we can supply our students with the kit they need to continue learning.

Code Reviews and Project Benchmarking

Our students enjoy their experience of the Code4000 programme and produce some brilliant work. However, our principle objective is to get out students into sustainable employment within the tech-industry and for that we need the help of tech-professionals.

In order to ensure that our learners are producing work of a quality that will see them gain employment as a developer. We are asking for developers to take a look at the projects completed by our learners and feedback to them about the quality of their code. We can then use this feedback to guide our learners in their coding journey and provide a clear assessment about our guys to potential employers.

Be a Skills Session Leader

Deliver a session, or a series of sessions, directly to our students in one of our academies. Whether exploring a familiar topic in more detail, introducing a new technology, or advising on employment and employabiility, our students are keen to learn and benefit enormously from contact with professionals from the tech-industry.

Create Curriculum Content

Our curriculum is designed to maximise the employment prospects of our students by teaching them the skills most im demand in the tech-industry. Naturally, we recognise professionals from the tech-world as the experts in this!

By developing, on our behalf, material for our curriculum you can help Code4000 keep their curriculum fresh, up-to-date, and therefore more effective in getting our students into work.
