What is Plug the Gap?

Welcome

Plug the Gap is a charitable organisation launched by Osiris IT, dedicated to closing the digital divide.

So many people are being marginalised and left out due to a lack of access to technology and the internet. Plug the Gap works to decrease the amount of people being left behind in this digital-first society we live in today.

Could you...
  • provide free training?
  • give pro bono support or consultancy time?
  • donate old or surplus IT equipment?
