The most relevant and useful digital content and events from the Catalyst network and beyond

Health Data Lab

The Health Foundation has launched a data lab to try and better understand health data in the UK. It’s useful to charities interested in understanding health data, but also for charities that want to see what can be done with digital.

How Code4Covid helped charities

Here’s an article from the founder of Code4Covid, an informal volunteer network which has done fantastic things linking charities up with tech support. Useful for anyone interested in understanding more about how external support can help the sector.

How to understand power when designing services

Media volunteering platform

If you’re looking for specialist media or comms support online, check out the Media Trust’s volunteering centre.

Digital trustee recruitment

Which reminds us. Don’t forget the more generalist but very useful Reach Volunteering, with its wide range of volunteers, and this great hub looking at digital trusteeship.
