iphone-410311_1280The notion of switching to digital may seem SO 2004, but it is back in the spotlight several years on.

While the whole nation managed to convert their televisions to fit into the modern age back then, it seems that charities are struggling to adapt to the concept of ‘digital ‘and how it can enhance their activities.

In the recent Charity Digital Skills Report, it emerged that half of charities do not have a digital strategy and cited a lack of funding and a lack of skills as the biggest barriers.

With so much potential for charities in areas such as raising awareness, fundraising and local engagement, now is the perfect time to review (or introduce) your strategy.
