Who we are

Bytes is a voluntary youth organisation, established in 1993, that uses creative ICT to engage and inspire the most socially excluded young people in Northern Ireland to realise their full potential and progress into education, training and employment.

We use the latest mobile ICT equipment to engage with young people in local communities, supporting them to progress in learning and personal development through a progressive curriculum of accredited qualifications.


We work alongside youth and community groups, government services, schools and colleges to identify and provide accredited training and mentoring support to the most marginalised young people who have often been excluded or excluded themselves from mainstream education and youth services.

The Bytes Project is an independent company limited by guarantee (NI027446) registered with The Charity Commission for Northern Ireland (NIC105711) with HMRC charitable status (XR44520). The charity is governed by a Board of voluntary Trustees who are responsible for the overall strategy, policy and governance of the organisation.

Or work is delivered by a staff team of dedicated and qualified youth development officers who specialise in youth work and creative ICT. We also involve volunteers and apprentices in our work, to provide progression routes for the young people who participate in our programmes.
