Code First: Girls

Code First: Girls is a multi-award winning social enterprise, and we raise our revenues through a combination of sponsorship and corporate services. All profits we make get plugged back into running the community courses and other activities we run with smart young women who want to build careers in tech and entrepreneurship.

Each year we run classes that teach 2000+ women how to code, for free. Over the past 4 years, we’ve delivered £2 million+ of free coding courses and helped companies to recruit better tech talent into their firms.
