Short answer as Jah says above. They are a charity. 
They have an online document which they shared publicly asking for
contribution. I contributed to it saying that many of their issues
might be reinventing the wheel. 
I pointed them towards groups that are doing similar things such as
consumers international, fsf, fsfe, and ORG (I think I forgot about
public software). So basically, it was me who pointed them in fsfe
Some of their blogs can be found here: https://medium.com/doteveryone
Their founder is Martha Lane Fox who has the respect of many people in
I don't know what it implies to have their dot-everyone  on the links
page of fsfe but I feel that doteveryone should be consulting with fsfe
and other charities to find out what is best for ethical tech. 
They also have a podcast: https://soundcloud.com/user-558357776
I get the feeling that they have just started but probably will have
strong influence in business in UK.
