We took part in Byte Night (by Action for Children) 2018 and 2019 by sleeping on the streets to help raise money for homeless children and join the fight against youth homelessness.
For the 2nd year in a row we were the largest company with over 20 of our 70 employees taking on the challenge, which is trust testament to our values, culture and people that sit at the heart of what makes Answer Digital unique and successful.
Here's how we have approached a challenge that isn't a business one, but one close to our hearts. Children with autism are often not given every possible opportunity to develop their particular potential. Which is why Lighthouse School in Leeds exists. It is a school specifically and solely for young people aged between 11 and 19 with an autistic spectrum condition (ASC) or a related communication disorder.
It is Yorkshire's first special free school and provides a very personalised and broad education not just covering the National Curriculum but also vocational subjects as well as life, social and communication skills.
The aim was not simply to teach but to provide these young people with the tools they need by which to learn and succeed and thrive in life. Check out the video below to see how we got on!!
