CDW is a proud partner of The Prince’s Trust and The Sick Children’s Trust.
The Prince’s Trust aims to tackle inequality and enable social mobility. The youth charity helps young people aged 11 to 30 secure fulfilling and sustainable jobs by providing education, training, and workplace experience. The Trust believes every young person should have the chance to succeed, regardless of their background, and helps them develop their confidence and the skills to live, learn, and earn.
CDW’s donation provides more than 500 young people a year with digital skills, training, and access to networks, giving them an insight into our industry and the confidence to pursue a career in it. Our CDW Diversity, Equity & Inclusion values shape the partnership, building a platform for CDW co-workers to create positive change within communities through volunteering, fundraising, and mentorship.
“This patronage will enable CDW to take a focused approach to our fundraising activities and support the tremendous work of The Prince’s Trust. We’re passionate about our commitment to supporting the communities in which we operate, and we look forward to expanding this through our partnership with The Prince’s Trust.”PENNY WILLIAMS

For more than forty years The Sick Children’s Trust has supported families in their time of need. When a child becomes ill and requires hospital care there’s no time for planning. The Sick Children’s Trust is there to support the families of children in this difficult situation. The Trust’s ten ‘Homes from Home’ provide families with warm and welcoming accommodation just minutes away from their child, and someone to talk to during their stressful time.
We’re very pleased to be partnering with the Sick Children’s Trust and to support their vital work. As well as giving them a helping hand through volunteer days, we’ve sponsored fundraising events, including their Ruby Slipper Gala, which raise vital funds that allow them to continue to offer families valuable support.
At CDW, we know first-hand how much of an impact the work of The Sick Children’s Trust has on families.
“While our daughter underwent life-saving surgery, my wife and I stayed at one of the houses, which served as our ‘Home from Home’. Since then, our daughter has fully recovered, however, many other families still need the vital support offered by the trust. CDW are delighted to support The Sick Children’s Trust, and are committed to making a real, long-lasting difference by supporting its ‘Homes from Home’ to help ensure more families can stay together during these difficult times.”CARL LAWTON
