Our Mission and Values
We are committed to the provision of high quality software that changes the lives of all our customers. Our mission is to change lives and our values are excellence, respect, empowerment, integrity and fun. We remain passionate about getting great technology into the hands of those who need it.
Corporate Social Responsibility
We feel that our mission statement to ‘change lives’ is also reflected in the communities and the environments in which we operate.
In 2013/ 2014, we are committed to a programme of fundraising events for the benefit of two charitable organisations - Camara Education and The Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice.
Our support for these two charitable organisations is a recognition of key Texthelp principles: (i) our belief in the significance of technology in educating and empowering people; and (ii) the importance of supporting those who are vulnerable in society.
