The Small Groups Network meeting brings together people from community groups that are either completely run by volunteers, or have up to 3 paid members of staff. It is an opportunity to think about grassroots activity in the borough, network and meet others, and get support and information that is tailored to your needs.
What's on the Agenda for the April 2019 Meeting?
Digital Leadership and making strategic decisions in small charities / organisations.
What does digital mean for you? Is it the nuts and bolts of having a website, sending an email or taking a donation online? What about IT security? GDPR and keeping people safe? Choosing IT systems? Is it key to how you deliver your social impact?
Digital is no longer an add-on or optional to the way charities and community organisations are run. Digital technology is deeply embedded in how local people live their lives every day and how we as small organisations operate services that meet their needs.
Board members and managers face some tough decisions. Resources are tight and it’s hard to know what to prioritise. It’s also hard to make sound strategic choices when digital isn’t your day job.
However, digital offers a big opportunity to increase the impact of your work, be more collaborative and secure funding. In fact, The Lloyds Business Digital Index reveals that highly digitally capable charities are twice as likely to save time, and ten times as likely to save money.
The session promises to be interactive, thought provoking and it will use the principles of the recently launched UK Charity Digital Code of Practice to explore how small charity leaders can develop their organisation’s digital capability.
You’ll discover some new ways of working and ideas and resources to take back to your board or your teams.
Facilitator: Kate White has been managing and developing Superhighways for more than 18 years and has a wealth of experience in charity and community sector use of digital, IT and impact measurement using technology.
