I started Pipal Associates after I left Charter88, the constitutional reform campaign, in 1997. I had been their systems manager and before that had worked in computer training in east London. Before I got involved with computers in the early ’80s I had done a series of youth and community work jobs as well as teaching and so I was drawn to the 3rd sector for my client base.
This still holds true today where my current client list includes City of London Citizens Advice Bureau, Changing Faces, East London Financial Inclusion Unit (ELFI), Hackney Marsh Partnership, London Detainees Support Group, London Hazard Centre, Wandsworth Carers and Waltham Forest Citizens Advice Bureaux.
My website has been a static lump of a thing for all that time – so now I’ve changed it to a blog to see if and how it develops
