The pace of change in digital is moving fast, and the charity sector is no exception. But what has really changed in charity digital over the last year, and how does your organisation compare?

Following the success of last year’s Charity Digital Skills Report, we are once again working with Skills Platform to map digital skills across the sector. Our report will show how other charities across the UK are using digital, where the skills gaps are, and what this means for the sustainability of the sector. It will establish how the sector has moved on with digital over the last year, helping you to identify the opportunities and risks for your organisation.

We’d love to hear your views, as everything you tell us will help build a comprehensive picture of digital skills across the sector. Last year’s report received coverage in The Guardian, Third Sector, Civil Society, Econsultancy and City AM amongst many others, and was also mentioned in a debate about the charity sector in the House of Lords last week. Read Skills Platform’s  quick summary of last year’s report. 

We’ll share the results in the 2018 Charity Digital Skills Report which we’ll launch in March. We’re very excited to hear what you think.

For anyone who’s wondering how we’re defining digital, we see it as a broad area which covers the use of technology, from software to hardware to communications.

The survey will take just 5-10 minutes to complete. Just add your  email address at the end to join our Report launch list, and to be entered into our prize draw. We have 10 x £20 Amazon vouchers to give away. Many thanks to The Charity Learning Consortium for contributing the prizes.
