Chester charities and community groups got the chance to develop their social media and website skills at a free website clinic held at the Riverside Innovation Centre.
Four local groups got involved as part of an initiative organised by Chester Voluntary Action (CVA).
CVA noticed local voluntary groups struggled to find sound website related advice, so sourced website expert Kris Tisdale from Ambos Digital. Kris created a guru clinic in order for the voluntary sector to use Kris as a sounding board for their website plans.
CVA’s SkillShare initiative connect local business people and professionals willing to volunteer their skills with charities and community groups who require their services.
Joanne Walton from CVA said: “Joanne Walton from CVA said: “local business skills sharing schemes like our SkillShare initiative are a great way to support smaller local charities and voluntary groups to access professional skills and expertise that may otherwise financially be beyond their reach. It was fantastic to be able to tap into Kris’s expertise”.
Kris Tisdale from ‘Ambos Digital’ said “Ambos chose to support CVA SkillShare as we feel it is important to share knowledge which may otherwise be unobtainable to small charities or local voluntary groups. We recognise that a small amount of knowledge can make a massive difference to how charities raise awareness and fundraise in their communities”.
