The directory will be run as a free service and will list only ICT companies that have a proven track record of working in the voluntary and community sector. Organisations looking for ICT services will be able to search the site by postcode or key words.
"There has been a strong demand for a resource like this," said Nicola Thompson, project manager at the ICT Hub. "The online suppliers directory answers this by enabling third sector groups to find talented local professionals who can carry out their ICT work.
"We're confident that the directory will be a useful tool, both for voluntary organisations looking for suppliers of ICT services, and for suppliers who can provide services tailored to the sector's needs."
The directory is available at www.directory.icthub.org.uk.
