Digital Capacity Updates
We have so many good news stories to share, residents who now have laptops, groups who have necessary devices and have received all kinds of support including digital security assessments, website development, document creation and the development of data stories. Don’t forget the on-going access to training and support from EHCVS and our amazing Digital Champions.

There is still lots more training and support available over the next few months, the current Digital Capacity Project ends in January but in the meantime keep a look out for all of the events advertised through our evenbrite pages  and book onto anything that might help.

In November we will be doing some specific capacity building workshops by CAP Enterprise and the lovely Social Media expert Aliya as well as our own Cyber Security Digital Champion, Mukesh Malhotra, during the Hounslow Digital Festival.

Giving Tuesday Cheat Sheet
“Giving Tuesday is a movement created as a response to the commercialisation and consumerism on the lead up to the holiday season — and a chance for people to give back in the season of goodwill. This year it falls on November 30th so now is the time to start planning – especially in our current environment to maximise the benefit your organisation can get from Giving Tuesday. Last year, the U.K. alone, over £20m was donated to good causes for Giving Tuesday, a 43% increase in giving from 2019 — that’s more than £14k every minute! #GivingTuesday is only one piece of the annual fundraising pie which will need to evolve this year, so it’s never too early to start implementing your strategy. Let’s walk through five ways to maximize your end-of-year fundraising.” Click here to read more.
