Tinder foundation announcing our name change

  2. 2. •  On 8th July 2013 we changed our name from Online Centres Foundation to Tinder Foundation and launched a new strategy •  The reaction from partners has been great, but many have asked for an explanation so here it is …..
  3. 3. Why change? •  We have an ambitious new three year strategy •  We outgrew the Online Centres Foundation name •  We are a staff owned mutual so we involved the staff and chose the name together - voting for it at our first AGM
  4. 4. A new name for a new future (not an old name about where we’ve been)
  5. 5. Why Tinder? •  We spark new ideas and innovation •  We ignite change at a local level •  We are able to take something small and scale it up
  6. 6. Why a fingerprint on the logo? •  We’re all about people •  Working with our partners, our scale means we have helped millions of people …… and we care about each and every one of them
  7. 7. Looking to the Future •  We make good things happen through digital technology •  We still run the UK online centres network - that’s the biggest of our four main products: UK online centres Learn My Way Community How To Digital Housing Hub
