The market

Charities and non-profit organisations are keenly aware of the vast opportunities and benefits that technology presents them. Managers in the public sector, local government and social housing for example, understand how digital is helping to improve service delivery, especially in light of recent reforms and spending cuts. 
Charities also are utilising digital more than ever to make a positive impact on community engagement, donations and income generating opportunities. 

We understand that making a positive difference to citizens is one of the key drivers to charities and non-profit organisations. We work with our clients in these sectors to drive change and to help transform the way they communicate with their audiences to increase cost efficiencies and boost productivity.

Our Charity and Not-for-Profit solutions include:

Website Development & Digital Strategy

Your website is arguably your number one communications and promotional tool for your organisation. And in a mobile-first, cloud-first world, the way your audiences interact with you online has massively changed - from the increased use of mobile and tablet devices, to how audiences search for relevant content and how they engage with you, and each other, via social. 

Donors and others who engage with your organisation are increasingly expecting content that will help them learn more about your work and show them why their support makes a difference. We will work with you to define your business goals, providing you with expert advice to get the best out of technology. 

We have experience of designing and developing engaging and interactive websites and portals that help non-profit organisations reach, and often exceed, their objectives, be it increasing donations, sharing knowledge or encouraging audience participation.


An effective intranet should be able to deliver an interactive and inclusive collaboration and communications gateway that provides easy access to the latest news, content, workflow, documents and applications from whatever device you are on, wherever you are. 

ClearPeople have a wealth of experience providing non-profit organisations with the tools and resources to share, collaborate and communicate internally saving precious resource and budget. 

For Alzheimer’s Society we created an easy to use, accessible communications intranet that connected their audience of full and part-time employees and volunteers, allowing them to collaborate and share information between themselves and external partners from wherever they were, using single sign-on capabilities. 

Office 365

Microsoft Office 365 delivers the power of cloud productivity to charities and non-profit organisations of all sizes, helping to save time, money and free up valuable resources. 

Many charity and non-profit organisations are unaware that Microsoft offer Office 365 for free and you can trial it to see how it can help your organisation. Download our handy guide which explains what is on offer and how we can help.

Cloud Services

Cloud computing is the delivery of computing as a service rather than a product, whereby shared resources, software and information are provided to computers and other devices as a utility over a network, and with ever-tightening budgets, charity and non-profit organisations are utilising the power of the cloud more and more.

In order to be a “Digital First” organisation and help them to achieve ambitious plans for the future, the Cystic Fibrosis Trust worked with ClearPeople to detangle their hosting infrastructure and move to Azure. Our work with Cystic Fibrosis Trust contributed to their winning the Workplace Transformation Project of the Year at the 2015 UKIT Industry Awards run by BCS, The Chartered Institute of IT, and Computing.

We have also deployed award-winning cloud based solutions for The Crown Estate to manage over 1 petabyte of data, saving them millions of pounds in infrastructure costs. And for Amnesty International, we architected a new hosting infrastructure that had to deliver reliability and performance and be ready in time for a critical business deadline. 

If you’d like to know more about how to get started on your Cloud Journey, our Ready. Set. Cloud. programme allows you to get started easily. 

Document Management

Document management focuses on the storage and organisation of documents to support an organisation’s work in progress, including content creation and collaboration internally. In the charity and public sector, policy documentation, financial reports and member profiles need to be managed and controlled properly.

Without formalised control, organisations often find that their internal handling of documents makes it difficult for individuals to create, share and collaborate easily. 

ClearPeople are two times winners at the Document Manager Awards and have the expertise to help your organisation create a future-proof document collaboration tool that allows you to share important information and knowledge with many users across wide locations.
