Doteveryone is here to show what’s possible. Tech that does good, at scale, for the future. For everyone.
We began after Martha Lane Fox’s BBC Dimbleby lecture in 2015. We're a charity with a Community Interest Company (CIC), not a think tank, or part of government, or a social enterprise. We don’t have to turn a profit, meet a policy need or let legacy IT contracts and self-perpetuating bureaucracies get in the way.
We have fewer constraints and the freedom to work in different ways.
We pick big and brave projects that span many different sectors and affect a lot of people.
We look at the whole system, starting with user needs and we join the dots to make everything we do have as big an impact as possible.
The way we work echoes how we build software. We start with rapid prototyping and through different iterations we create the right tools and services for the people who are going to use them. If they work we scale them or hand them over to partners. If they don't, we figure out why and make improvements.
We’re not just stuck behind a desk or making PowerPoint presentations. Our research is about listening to the people who might use the services. We put user needs first and make things which are accessible. This makes it more likely that our digital-first products and services will be scalable and work for everyone.
Our projects will change over time, but we will continue to show, not just tell, what’s possible. We publish what we’ve found out so we, or someone else, can learn and make something better.
You can read about our progress and learnings - both successes and failures - on our blog.
