Free digital Design Hop workshop

27 March at 12:30pm to 4:30pm
Provided by CAST
Description

CAST Design Hop: A free digital workshop for charities

Design Hops are free, half-day workshops for charities exploring the role of digital in their services in an accessible, practical way. The four-hour session helps you unpack and prioritise your ideas and identify the next steps you need to take to make them a reality, as well as signposting the funders and tech partners who can support your ambitions.

What is a Design Hop?

The Centre for Acceleration of Social Technology (CAST) has helped over 300 nonprofits of all sizes over the last three years develop their digital culture and create brilliant digital services. A Design Hop is a free, half-day workshop that offers a practical and accessible introduction to digital, and how it can help your organisation deliver services with greater focus, impact and reach. All you need to get started is knowledge of a problem your service users are facing, which all charities have in abundance!

You'll leave with a clear idea of what you need to do next, and the confidence to get on and do it. To make this even easier, you’ll have created a document that can double as a brief to a tech partner or as a pitch to funders. 

Venue Hunslet Meeting Room, VAL
Stringer House, 34 Lupton Street, Hunslet, Leeds, LS10 2QW
Learning outcomes - Not just the theory behind good use of digital but how other charities we’ve worked with have used it in practice - what they did, what it achieved, how much it cost. - Digital funding opportunities and networks, including which grantmakers are more open to digital applications and any regional organisations that are well-placed support your development. - A series of exercises that help you get started immediately: 1. Unpack the different aspects of your problem in a manageable way 2. Understand what assets you already have that can help you tackle it 3. Hone your focus 4. Then finally articulate potential solutions to others.
Suitable for Registered UK charities wanting to use digital to improve their service delivery. We welcome all social focuses and the emphasis of this workshop is on an organisation's core service offering rather than supporter-focused marketing, campaigning or fundraising. This workshop is not suitable for organisations under

Description

Leeds City Council, NHS CCGs and other public sector bodies are keen to contract with third sector organisations to provide services through the commissioning process which involves the assessment of a community’s needs and buying in organisations to provide services to meet those needs. THERE WILL BE INPUT FROM A LEEDS CITY COUNCIL COMMISSIONER AT THIS SESSION.

This session will help organisations bid for contracts.  It will ensure organisations know what they need to have in place in order to be eligible to apply and help them understand how to complete a successful SSQ (standard selection questionnaire) and tender.  A commissioner from LCC will give support and advice during the session.

ONLY AVAILABLE TO LEEDS BASED GROUPS AND LEEDS BASED 3RD SECTOR ORGANISATIONS.
