Last week IT minister Stephen Timms kicked off the bid by the British Computer Society, the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists, Intellect and the Professional Contractors Group to boost the numbers of IT professionals offering their skills to good causes.
IT4Communities also aims to increase the effectiveness of IT professionals involved in volunteering projects.
David Edwards, the co-ordinator of the initiative, said, "If you plan your volunteering properly it will be enjoyable, good for your business, and good for the community."
The initiative, which is also backed by Computer Weekly, is aimed at anyone with professional IT skills at any level, whether suppliers, users, small or large organisations.
