IT/Tech & Digital Support

Charities with a digital strategy are generally more optimistic about the future of their organisations than those without. However it can be quite overwhelming for small charities and grass roots initiatives to keep up with technology and invest in the most cost-effective way. The smallest tips and tricks from experts can change a lot for them.

Please have a look at the requested support and submit your details. We will get in touch with you to discuss further steps (i.e. match you with the right people).

Beneficiaries: women

Women + Health delivers affordable complementary therapies and counselling to women in Camden. They target at women most disadvantaged and marginalised, who live with stresses and strains that impact on their health, while often finding it hard to prioritise their own well-being.

They particularly welcome support with making a series of small promotional video clips for their social media channels.

Beneficiaries: elderly

The Third Age Project serves the needs of 1 in 4 of the local population who are over 60 years of age. Their target groups are older people who are on low income, live on their own, are social isolated and suffer from a long term health condition or disability. 

The Third Age Project team is looking for support to raise awareness that older people are people too and to record the work they do to improve the lives of their beneficiaries.

 

It Audit

Beneficiaries: young children & families

Little Village is like a foodbank, but for clothes, toys and equipment for babies and children up to the age of 5. It’s a movement of parents committed to alleviating material poverty in London. Their mission is that no child in the capital grows up without essential items of clothing, toys and equipment. Each of the sites run regular drop-in sessions where families who have been referred are welcomed in, and invited to choose the items they need while their children play.

Little Village run by mostly volunteers is rapidly growing and they could use some expert view to make sure their IT is up to date with their growth.
