Digital in the Third Sector
There are only two certainties in life…
Whatever you want to add onto the end of that famous quote, digital would either be one of the two certainties or at least the essential third. There is no escape, not personally, not in the workplace and certainly not in the Third Sector if you or your organisation wishes to stay current and relevant in today’s digitally enhanced world.
Digital needs to be a force for good within your organisation, it should be of benefit to you internally and externally, this means making sure you prioritise the right amount of care and attention, develop a formal strategy and aim to receive the maximum benefit.
But where should a Charity begin? Who should take responsibility? Where do you go for advice, what are your risks, what skills do you need…
In our first guide which will be part of a series of digital documents we hope to pull together the main considerations for your Charity, the guidance already available to you, and explain some of the more common social media platforms that you can use on your digital journey.
Our first guide covers the following topics:
- Key Competencies of a Digital Trustee
- The Charity Digital Code of Practice
- Digital considerations for Trustees
- Are you on the world’s third-most visited website?
At the end of the guide we have included a handy checklist to help you evaluate your progress and implement small achievable steps to help you manage your digital journey.
