Founded by Alan Turing’s family, The Turing Trust seeks to continue his legacy by using technology to empower disadvantaged communities. Alan is widely regarded as the father of modern computing and he saw IT as a tool for solving immense challenges. He also had a passion for helping others: he funded one member of his foster family to work in Africa and sponsored a Jewish refugee’s schooling during World War II. 

In honour of Alan Turing’s altruistic spirit, we refurbish IT equipment, install a range of educational software and provide it to those who need it most. With your help and a great deal of hard work, we believe that one day every child will be able to enjoy the transformative power of technology that Alan envisioned.

For years I have bell learning and enjoying many subjects on my laptop, and wish for all to have their big chance to know about the world that we live in. Hip hip.

From the cast and crew of 'Guilty of Love', the new Alan Turing Musical that made it's Edinburgh Fringe debut this August. We are proud to have raised £100, donated from our audiences, cast and crew during our last week in Edinburgh. We are thrilled to help continue Alan's legacy and raise awareness of the fantastic work the Turing Trust does.
