Our charity of the year 2024 is…

January 31, 2024


At the start of every year, we take a company-wide vote to decide which of the many worthy organizations will be the Crick Software “charity of the year.” We then spend the next 12 months taking part in various activities to raise as much money for them as we can!

This year, the team’s clear winner was The Lowdown – a mental health charity supporting young people near our UK office.

Why The Lowdown?

The Lowdown provides free and confidential support services for 11- 25-year-olds in Northamptonshire, UK and believes that no young person should ever experience mental health issues alone. They offer a caring environment where young people are always supported on their journey towards positive emotional health and well-being.

Their work

The Lowdown works with young people to provide accessible, safe, welcoming, confidential, and nonjudgmental services including:

  • Counseling
  • Information, Advice & Advocacy
  • Well-being
  • LGBTQ+ Support
  • Youth Groups
  • Sexual Health

Last year, over 2,000 young people were supported by the charity!

Where we come in

We have lots of fun activities planned, including bake sales and sponsored challenges, to ensure that 2024 is our most successful fundraising year ever. As always, we’ll keep you updated through our Facebook and X channels.
