Update from March 2020
Welcome to the end of March 2020 issue of Digital WM News and our third issue of 2020, a special issue dedicated to information from trusted sources, aimed at supporting mainly small charities at this time .
SPECIAL COVID 19 ISSUE
This issue is coming out at a time when communities around the Midlands and the world are dealing with the impact of a corona virus, Covid 19. In this issue we are bringing together resources aimed at helping those who are helping others in their community.
We continue to help you and your organisation/community group increase your digital skills and knowledge in 2020
In this shorter than usual issue we include:
It is easy to become overwhelmed with all the information available right now so we're leaving out loads of stuff including the Vacancies section.
- Links to each CVS in your region website page with the latest local information about how they are responding to COVID 19
- Links to advice about remote working for voluntary organisations
- Links to resources for charities about using technology better
We will probably publish another issue in mid-April and then our usual issue at the end of April
We continue to increase digital skills and knowledge in the VCSE sectors, as part of Project 2020, by curating the most useful items we see on the web during the month.
We'd love to hear your stories of increasing digital skills and knowledge too. Please email them to Pauline at RnR.Organisation@gmail.com, marking them for my attention.
