Social values at Lucid Networks

Lucid Networks contributes in various ways to our local communities and the wider IT community, including:

Support for local communities

  • We regularly put on free educational events for SME’s in the form of webinars and seminars. Our main topics are IT Security, IT Compliance and trends in IT Infrastructure.
  • We offer free “office hour clinics” to companies based at Manchester Science Park, where they can get free IT advice.
  • We work with the local universities to recruit new graduates and exhibit at career fairs.
  • We donate regularly (both financially and our time) to Embassy a charity which provides emergency shelter and longer term support to vulnerable homeless men in Manchester. Our fundraising has recently included participating in a “bus pull” event.
  • We have a policy of donating surplus food from all our events and meetings directly to the homeless within Manchester.
  • We donate to the Wikimedia Foundation which is dedicated to providing free knowledge to all, most notably by hosting Wikipedia.
  • We contribute to various Open Source software projects
