Voluntary Action Camden

Digital and IT capacity building programme

In recent years digital communications has become integral to running a voluntary organisation. Throughout 2020, the coronavirus pandemic shifted even more of our work and social activities online. In this current landscape it is very important that your organisation can connect with service users and volunteers through a digital platform. This platform might be a website, a newsletter or a social media feed such as Facebook or Twitter that helps you keep in touch with the outside world, and lets people know about your work.

Are you a voluntary organisation or group in Camden needing help to increase your digital skills?
If so, we’d like to hear from you.

Get in touch with Alex Charles at alexcharles@vac.org.uk

Gaining digital skills will help you to increase the impact of your organisation. Maintaining digital platforms will also allow you to collect important user data on service users interacting with those platforms, which you can then use to improve your services and public reputation.

Sounds interesting?

We work in partnership with Voluntary Action Islington and the The Worshipful Company of Information Technologists to deliver a programme of digital and IT skills training, specifically for voluntary organisations in Camden and Islington.

Our programme contains training courses and workshops that will enable you to develop proficient digital and IT skills and overcome barriers to funding and organisational development.

We’ll work with you to develop best practice and connect with other organisations and groups, supporting each other in building digital skills and achieving more.

We’re also exploring ways to develop an online Digital Network for the sector where members can ask questions, access resources and share knowledge and best practice.

Our other aspirations include developing information sheets on best practice and making those available to download by voluntary organisations and community groups.

For information on how to sign up, go to the Training Calendar, below, to find out what’s on next and book your place.

All workshops are free for all voluntary and community groups in Camden and Islington. Expect a single session to last one or two hours.

If there’s a topic you would like help with, let us know and we’ll include that in the session.

We’ll be sure to leave enough time for questions which the experts can answer at the end.
