advice on IT for voluntary youth centre's

  madmands78 21:48 18 Sep 2007

I'm part of a non profitable charity youth centre.
We find it really hard to find funding for the up keep of this building. That when it comes to our computer room which has took us nearly three year's to get up and running. We find it hard to keep up to date with software and the hardware.
Does anyone know of any company's who help out with these kind of things.
Any information would be much appreciated.

Is the youth centre a registered charity?

If so you can get help with software and computers for instance Civica click here can help charities get MS Office at a very good price

On the other hand you could use just free software and also Operating Systems if you used Linux. You could try using Linux first by using a Live CD, This as office programs and other software all run from the CD and installed memory, Have a look hear at Live Linux click here
