During the first week of August, we tragically lost Mark Young. Mark was a wonderful Husband, Father, Son and Friend to many people whose lives he touched in countless ways; and we are establishing the #ForeverYoung memorial fund in Mark’s honour.

The purpose of this fund will be to help individuals in the IT industry to deal with the devastating effects of depression and loneliness that so frequently occur in such a high pressure industry. In a fast paced environment like “tech”, people’s feelings are often lost between the constant quest to “make the number”. We feel that it is important to restore the human element across the industry, and to make sure that we’re spending a little more time on our fellow stakeholders' actual feelings; to keep them in the loop and ideally to identify any potential outliers as individuals that need some care and attention.

Mark's family has selected The Campaign Against Living Miserably as the organisation that will be the recipient of all donations received in Mark's memory.
