Microsoft UK's aim is to build social and economic prosperity in the UK through their citizenship programmes.
One area in which Microsoft works to make a difference socially within citizenship is through community affairs. Microsoft has successfully established an extensive network of non-profit partners to support community-based programmes and local projects that will enable more people to have access to technology.
Why choose Microsoft's cloud?
Cloud-based tools can support charities, with advantages in security, organisational control of data, ease of use and increased agility.
Thankfully, moving to a cloud-based solution doesn’t have to mean retraining your staff or volunteers. Office 365 and Microsoft 365 allow you to use the same applications that you’re used to, with access to files anywhere online.
