Digital Pioneers

SCVO Digital Team like to inspire and be inspired!

We’ve scouted out some of the best examples from across the voluntary sector of organisations which are utilising a range of tools and approaches to help improve the way they support people and work more efficiently. Our Digital Pioneers recognise the need to continuously develop their skills and actively seek out new ways of doing things.

Here, our Digital Pioneers share their stories in their own words. Why don’t you tell us yours and we’ll share it to inspire others.
