We’ve been helping charities manage their data since 2004. What started with a few small organisations in North London has become rather more: we work with over 100 organisations with more than 1,500 operators. Our customers are based all across the country, and provide all sorts of services to lots of different people.
We are a small, private company. We all have various experience in the voluntary sector, as employees, trustees or volunteers (we’re all at least one of those!). Many years ago Matt worked in a youth club, and every term would have to compile all the statistics, which meant sitting down with a big pile of membership forms, a big pile of registers, some spreadsheets and some tally charts. Three days later he’d emerge… only to have to repeat it, perhaps slightly differently, for the next funder. Matt was also in charge of the IT budget – then £300 a year(!). So a couple of years later Lamplight was born: to provide an efficient database system that supported day-to-day work and made reporting easy – with a price structure that would fit in a £300/year budget.
This is still what drives us: we want to provide the best system on the market at the best price, accessible to even the smallest organisations but flexible and powerful enough for the biggest.
