According to the latest Charity Digital Skills Report, more than 52% of charities do not have a digital strategy in place, yet more than two thirds want to use digital to increase their impact, make more effective use of data and improve service-delivery. At the same time, charities and community groups are faced with challenges around funding, skills, culture and infrastructure, which serve as barriers to getting the most from their digital and IT systems – and therefore delivering the best outcomes for their service-users.
In response, VAC has teamed up with Voluntary Action Islington and the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists to help build IT and digital capacity for Camden and Islington’s Voluntary and Community Sector.
About the Programme
The objective of the programme is to create a library of best practice and a network of groups who can support each other for Voluntary groups in Camden and Islington.
This is initially being delivered through a series of workshops. We are also exploring the development of an online Digital Network for the sector where users can ask questions, access resources and share knowledge and best practice within the network.
Learning from these channels will lead to the ongoing development of information sheets on best practice being loaded to the VAC website, reviewed and maintained by WCIT, and available for all community groups in Camden and Islington to access as and when they need.
