If better digital could increase the effectiveness of the charity sector by just 1%, that would have a HUGE impact.
But we know there isn’t a magic wand. It’s not as simple as saying ‘use digital more effectively’.
With that in mind,
We create prototypes (or skateboards, as we like to call them). This lets us trial new services, and scale the ones that seem to be working.
Right now, our major focus is helping charities respond to the challenges of COVID-19. Our Digital Teams programme provides expert teams to clusters of charities that need to redesign services. Digital Candle and Weekly Zoom Calls are free services for all charities needing guidance.
Catalyst is a charitable initiative. Our mission is to increase the resilience and responsiveness of UK civil society, through digital, design and data. We’re an alliance of over 100 civil society organisations, funders, and digital agencies.
To ensure public benefit and good governance, Catalyst is incubated by CAST, a registered charity.
