Event description

Description

About the event:
The digital revolution has happened. New digital technology and the internet has changed the way we live our lives and work. The Digital Inclusion Network has brought together over 200 local organisations for the past 2 years, most of which are small charities, supporting them to make this switch to digital in an inclusive way.

What is working to date? Are we evolving enough the way we deliver services to fully support individuals and communities? And what is required to make the sector more digitally confident?

Bringing together third sector leaders, digital agencies, commissioners, frontline staff and local digital champions, this half-day event will explore:

  • The changed expectations of service users, beneficiaries, trustees, funders, stakeholders, staff and volunteers in a digital world

  • How to create a culture that maximises digital opportunities to deliver better services in an inclusive way

  • The next steps needed to make this change happen across the city

Guest speakers include:

  • Beth Murphy, One Digital Programme Manager, Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO)

  • Ellie Hale, Digital Fellowship & Communities Lead, Centre for Acceleration of Social Technology (CAST)

  • Jess Sumner, CEO, Community Works

  • John Reading, Third Sector Manager, Brighton and Hove City Council

This event is organised by Digital Brighton & Hove in collaboration with Community Works, and generously sponsored by Clearleft.
