About Catch22

Catch22 is a social business - a non-profit business driven by a social mission. For more than 200 years, they have worked across the UK to deliver better outcomes for young people and their families, wherever they face disadvantage.

The Challenge

In March 2020 Daniel Swithinbank was promoted to Head of IT & Digital, with a remit to make IT an enabler for the charity, and give staff the tools to deliver services to those that needed it most.

The Solution

After being recommended by other organisations and charities, Wanstor was initially awarded a contract to provide in-house IT support, manage hardware, networking and printer issues on site along with any day-to-day assistance required..

Wanstor have been epic, from implementing massive migrations seamlessly and with ease to the huge improvements in efficiency and functionality. I couldn’t have asked for anything to be done any differently, if I’m honest."
