The Isosec Charity of the Year 2018 is CodeYourFuture. CodeYourFuture is a non-profit organisation with the mission of helping every single refugee and asylum seeker with their dream of learning to code, finding employment in the tech industry and becoming a software developer.
They began when the team realised the synergy between the shortage of developer talent in the UK and ensuring asylum seekers and refugees had access to the platform and opportunities they so often miss out on to learn new skills and aid integration into society.
To do this CodeYourFuture offer a free 6-month training programme that prepares refugees with the essential skills and knowledge for them to obtain their first tech role in the industry. It’s not only the education that is provided, but also a community spirit and a network of support for people who too often find themselves in unstable situations.
