Partnerships We don't work alone. In every area that Bytes operates, we work alongside partner organisations to ensure that we offer a broad range of services and reach out to as many young people as possible. Co-operating with other charities and with community groups & organisations allows us to have a greater impact than if we worked alone. In Northern Ireland, Bytes has links with organisations including Youth Action, Simon Community, MACS and Youth Justice. The National Lottery Community Fund (formerly Big Lottery Foundation), the Education Authority and government tenders are key sources of funding for us, while businesses including PWC and Santander provide additional corporate funding and support for specific projects. Additional supporting partners include the British Council, NI Rural Community Network, Big Motive, Flax and Teal, Tides Training and local participating schools, college and youth centres. Working with social enterprises & charities, such as Kippie, Bounce and The Hummingbird Project, allows us to incorporate new technology and youth work methodologies into our work. Meanwhile, we have partnerships with social action groups such as The Rainbow Project and Cara-Friend NI to ensure that our work is inclusive and that we can provide a safe space to all the young people we work with. Notable past partners include, Google and Apple, with the latter being key funders when Bytes was established in the early 1990s and the reason we still have an apple as our logo to this day!
