How to join with our COVID-19 response

Two areas where we need your help: 

Identify needs

Catalyst is identifying and collating data about the needs of civil society. By creating an open, deep understanding of the greatest needs, we can prioritise our collective response and identify where digital can make the biggest difference.

We are keen to hear if you are currently collecting information about the needs of civil society organisations or plan to do so.


Collective effort

To respond to the unprecedented need and to minimise duplication, we need a shared picture of the digital community's capacity to respond.

Please share your capacity to support this effort, and to identify any projects in progress. The Catalyst network will use this information to allocate resources to the best placed teams.
