Now in its third year, the report provides an annual barometer of the state of digital skills within the charity sector.
Following the success of the report in 2017 and 2018, the Skills Platform, in partnership with Zoe Amar Digital, set about ‘taking the temperature’ of the charity sector and, more specifically, about how it’s using digital. The aim was to use the intelligence gathered to map digital skills across the charity sector and to develop a shared understanding of how digital can help charities to achieve their missions.
540 charity professionals shared their views on how their charity was progressing (or not) with digital, the effect of Brexit and how they were approaching the ethical challenges posed by digital innovation.
Overall this year we have seen progress in some charities’ digital skills, whilst there has been little movement in others and decline in some areas. Given the speed of change in digital, is the pace fast enough?
If you haven’t quite got time to read the whole report now, we’ve created a summary infographic which you can view below:
You can read what leaders across the sector are saying about the report here, including comments from Maria Orpen of Guide Dogs, Sarah Atkinson of the Charity Commission and Vicky Browning of ACEVO.
Finally, a huge thank you to our partner Zoe Amar of Zoe Amar Digital and to all those that contributed to the commentary, including Margot James, Minister for Digital and the Creative Industries, and Mims Davies, Minister for Sport & Civil Society, who wrote the foreword.
