About Us

Hatua is an ICT 4 Development Community Interest Company based in Lancaster and operating in the North West region of England.   We provide a range of appropriate and affordable ICT services primarily to charities, voluntary sector organisations, social enterprises and digitally and socially excluded individuals in the Lancaster and Morecambe district.

Our primary goal is to remove the barriers that prevent local organisations and individuals from accessing and using ICT.  We do this by providing low cost web hosting, affordable websites, and training on how to create and maintain an online presence.

Pronounced ha-too-wah, Hatua is a Swahili word, literally meaning footsteps, but a more accurate translation would be progress, develop, steps or action. Our philosophy is that by empowering our users to take control of online identity we can drive its adoption and better utilisation for the good of everyone.
