Northern Rock Foundation

The Community IT Academy provides advice to voluntary and community organisations according to the Circuit Rider Principles.

We specialise in supporting organisations which have a social purpose. Our associates can work with you on one-off projects or wider strategic development.

What consultancy means

  • working with you to plan your use of technology and make it work better for you
  • advising you on compliance, security and data management
  • helping you plan a change to your hardware, software, website or database
  • supporting you to develop a tender specification for a website or database
  • providing access to specialist training, support and charity pricing

Our integrated approach of offering strategic advice, targeted development and tailored training will leave your organisation better able to manage the technology you use and can even save you money.

What others say

"Lewis Atkinson and CITA were introduced to us by a mutual colleague. What a breath of fresh air it has been. Since meeting with Lewis we have updated and improved our IT performance. He is always honest with us and understands the complexity involved within the voluntary sector.

His wealth of knowledge is outstanding and he always comes up with the goods. If Lewis Atkinson says he will do something it’s also a certainty that it will happen. His manner, professionalism and knowledge is outstanding. I don't know what mess we would be in if he hadn't taken us under his wing."
