Listen to the newest episode of The Charity Digital Podcast
The Charity Digital Podcast returns for another instalment, with this episode centring on the how charities can quickly digitise their services in the wake of the COVID-19 lockdown. Our regular podcast highlights the challenges facing the sector, and the successful organisations that overcome them.
The world as we know it has changed, and the entire charity sector has been thrown into upheaval, as our day-to-day reality has disappeared overnight. With many of us confined to our homes, charities have faced a number of existential questions. The most pressing of which being, quite simply: how do we deliver our services to those who need them?
As the very sanctions that we have taken to ensure the safety of those most vulnerable members of our society begin to take their toll on our wellbeing, many charities are seeing increased demands for their services. We must rely more than ever on our digital systems. Though we may have to isolate physically, we will remain connected. New technologies and new digital solutions will allow us to overcome the unique challenges brought about by lockdown.
But where do we begin?
Alongside our wide range of written content, this episode of the Charity Digital Podcast helps charities to make the sudden and unexpected shift to remote working. Charity Digital CEO Jonathan Chevallier is joined Rosie Milsom, Fundraising and Communications Manager at Caudwell LymeCo and Joyce Borgs, Digital Practice and Learning Associate at CAST and The Catalyst to discuss how charities can quickly move their services online, how to overcome barriers and how you can help your service users to migrate with you. We also take a look at some of the tools that charities can use to deliver digital services.
