Welcome to Athena

 Athena Community Technologies CIC was set up in September 2016, after the closure of TechStart, (the community IT support project that was based in Aldershot), by the former Technical Manager and several volunteers. Our aim is to continue on from TechStart and serve the local community, providing the highest quality IT services at the lowest possible cost to both end users and businesses alike.


With the rise in the number of services now being offered online, having a computer and knowing how to use one is becoming all the more important. Unfortunately, not everyone has the finances and/or skills to be able to keep up with with this fast-changing world. Athena addresses these needs within the local (and wider) community and offers the following services:


Low cost repairs: Many people on low incomes might not necessarily be able to afford a new machine, or even a 2nd user one. Therefore it makes sense to repair existing equipment if it’s feasible. We can provide a high-quality but low-cost onsite & workshop repairs service (at a fraction of the cost of the larger players).


IT Training: We can provide basic and advanced IT training, depending on need, on a one-to-one or group session basis. Unfortunately, we do not hold training sessions on Athena premesis at the present time.


IT Break/Fix Support to local charities and SME's: Athena will also provide IT break/fix or managed service support to the local business community, including local charities and other CIC’s. Athena is in a position to provide this service at a much lower cost than many other service providers.
