The Importance of Digital in the Charity World


Over the last few days and weeks, it has been noticeable in the press there has been more impetus on the way in which charitable organisations are using digital technology. The need for charities to embrace this way of working is becoming more and more apparent and deemed as essential to the way in which charities conduct their business.

At the beginning of October, the Charity Commission launched a new guide to help charities embed digital technology into their practices as they recognise it is becoming essential practice. This launch was discussed in a great article a few days later, discussing the merits of digital technology in a charity world.

A few days later, Sarah Atkinson, the director of policy and communications at the Charity Commission, commented in a very interesting piece in the Guardian about the launch of the Charity Commission Guide.

More recently, an extremely thought provoking editorial was published on the website Charity Digital News, today, again highlighting the need for charities to explore the opportunities that using digital technologies bring to an organisation.

For d2 digital, these are exciting times and we hope we can work in partnership with willing charities to make digital work for them.
