Case Study: Transforming Futures Trust

Transforming Futures Trust – Modern Workplace

Customer: Transforming Futures Trust

Delt Service Area: Project Management and IT Services

In July 2020, Delt won a contract to provide a modern workplace solution to Transforming Futures Trust.

Transforming Futures Trust (TFT) works with children for whom mainstream education is not right: young people with behavioural challenges; children with mental health concerns; students who find the traditional setting of a school intimidating.  The extraordinary staff connect with these children and apply the principles of trauma informed care to enable them to reach their potential.  You can read more about TFT on their website .

This contract was the perfect opportunity for Delt to begin helping people do amazing things in the Education sector and was start of a mutually beneficial relationship.

To deliver the modern workplace solution, Delt partnered with a local cloud consultancy company (Integy) and the in-house IT team at TFT. Between us, over the 2020 Summer holiday period, we successfully designed, built and deployed a whole new technology environment.
