Purpose of the DEC Trust
In a time of exponential growth in computing and digital technologies and industries, we believe that there is value in facilitating an exchange of knowledge across a diverse range of business platforms, academic institutions and society at large.
In January 2015, The Guardian newspaper reminded us that ‘teenagers know more than the teachers about computer science’; whilst at the same time pockets of our aging population are unable to exploit digital communication to alleviate their increasing sense of loneliness.
We want to ensure that Southend-on-Sea, as a major area for business growth, leads the way in this activity.
Reflecting on this and the opportunity for growth, a group of philanthropic people set-up the DEC Trust to act as a catalyst for change.
What do we want to achieve?
