COVID-19 WAS THE TURNING POINT.
We were founded by a group of friends - Kanwar, Savraj, Nikos, Tomas, Kullie and Jymit - as the Covid-19 pandemic swept through the UK, and the digital divide clearly needed more rapid and locally focused response.
Our backgrounds are varied, from coordinating international aid to cyber-security. But we all have one thing in common: technology has propelled us through life, and is an essential aspect of modern living and individual successes.
So, as a clear lack of connectivity was identified - from children with no other option but to do homework on smartphones, to older adults unable to reach out to family, we decided to take action!
That's how we formed Ready Tech Go, a community-driven, not-for-profit organisation that strongly believes access to technology should be classified as a right rather than a privilege.
Today, we remain a BAME-led group that is largely volunteer led and who remains passionate about our impact way after any pandemic:
Savraj Kaur Co-Chair
Kanwar Singh Co-Chair
Nikos Souslous Secretary
Jymit Khondhu Cyber Lead
- Kullie Randhawa Treasurer
- Carlos F E Melo Operations Assistant
We are equally proud to have a growing volunteer Advisory Board that meets 2 times a year or when expertise is called on:
Savraj Kaur Chair
Sam Yearsley Advisor
