Frequently asked questions

1

What are Catalyst services?

Services are designed to support charities. They could be training, like Design Hops. Or they might encourage peer learning opportunities, like Coffee Connections.
2

Do individuals or organisations contribute to services?

Both. Some services work better for individuals, like Digital Candle. Some initiatives suit teams with expert skills, like Digital Teams.
3

Is this paid work or volunteering?

It’s a mix. Digital Candle is volunteer-powered. Individuals and organisations joining Digital Teams get paid for their time.
4

What is the time commitment?

It varies. Being a Digital Candle volunteer requires an hour of time. Running a Design Hop might be a few days. Being part of a Digital Team might be 2 weeks or more.

Might Catalyst help me with a service I've started?

We’d love to. Just email the Catalyst team, outlining who the initiative is aimed at, what it does, and how it helps people.
