Overview

Charityshare was set up in 2004 to be the shared IT department of its participating charities, namely The Children’s Society, Age UK and Alzheimer’s Society.

It combines the rigour of an external services provider with the flexibility and responsiveness of an internal IT function. Everything that Charityshare does is about bringing benefits to its member charities. Together with its economies of scale, beneficial VAT status and lack of profit margin, cost savings have been substantial.

Charityshare operates just like a commercial concern with the difference that instead of running to make a profit, it is in business to reduce costs. Annual savings to the participating charities now run at over £1m a year.
