Overview

Two years ago we published a Call to Action for the sector which was about why we need to embrace digital technology and approaches. We know that these messages have been taken on board and the next step is how to make the change happen.

There are changemakers working in charities across Scotland. You share a desire to make things better- to work more effectively and to make the most of new opportunities.

Join us on 23rd October for a celebration event – “Digitally Confident Scotland – making it happen”. You will have the chance to share your stories, and draw inspiration from others.

The event will be a full day of inspiring stories, interactive break out sessions and actionable learning covering a range of topics including:

  • Getting the right people – skills and mindset
  • Pain points – anticipating and dealing with the setbacks
  • Quick wins – flexible tech and culture
  • Let’s talk about money – how much should I be spending?
  • Cyber risk and resilience
  • Starting from scratch
  • Building a business case
  • Data – Who has it, who needs it and what’s the role of funders and infrastructure bodies

Speakers are changemakers from a range of Scottish charities who are doing great things with digital, including:

  • Keynote - Neil Richardson - CEO of Turning Point Scotland
  • Ross McCulloch - Be Good Be Social
  • Edinburgh Tenants Federation
  • LGBT Youth Scotland
  • Big Hearts
  • Paths for All
  • Streetwork
  • Lead Scotland
  • Breakthrough Dundee
  • Lifelink
  • Changing Faces
  • Scottish Families Affected by Drugs and Alcohol
  • and more!
