How do Rapid X contribute to the community?

As a UK-based company, our roots run deep in the communities we serve, especially in Liverpool, where the heart of our operations and the majority of our team are located. Our commitment to giving back and fostering a sense of community is a core part of our identity. We understand the importance of supporting the next generation and providing opportunities for growth and learning. This understanding led to the creation of CodeClub, a unique initiative we offered free of charge to children aged 11-16. Through CodeClub, we opened the doors to the world of technology, offering free guidance, teaching coding skills, and sparking an interest in digital innovation that we hope will inspire future careers in technology.

But our engagement doesn't stop with the digital world. Understanding the immediate needs of our local community in Liverpool, we actively contribute to food & present banks during the Christmas season. By providing this support, we aim to make a tangible difference in the lives of those around us during times of need. These efforts reflect our belief that businesses have a role to play in nurturing their communities, building bridges between the digital and the tangible, and making a positive impact on the world around us.
