Next Meetup

Digital design principles to improve charity services
We're switching up the format and timing for the next Tech for Good meetup, and partnering with CAST (http://wearecast.org.uk/) to see the launch of digital design principles for (and by) the UK charity sector. Digital and design principles are a well established concept across the tech and startup worlds, and there are already some great sets being used by some of the most digitally mature charities. CAST has conducted research over the last four months into how charities use principles to design and deliver better digital services. Together with dozens of nonprofits and grant-makers, they've developed a new set of principles specifically designed to align with the needs, language and practice of the UK social sector. These provide clarity on what ‘good’ looks like when developing digital services, to help nonprofits and funders ‘build the right thing in the right way’, whatever stage they're at. You can read more about the process, rationale and learnings so far in this blog: https://medium.com/@wearecast/digital-design-principles-for-and-by-the-uk-charity-sector-progress-so-far-fbed01f9a4fe This event will see the launch of the first version of the principles. Over breakfast, we'll hear from charities about how they've used these principles and the impact they've had within their organisations, as well as from funders on why the principles are important to them. We'll also discuss the future of these principles and how we can engage the sector in their evolution. ***For more info and to register, visit the Eventbrite page: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/digital-design-principles-for-the-uk-charity-sector-tickets-45384171278*** ****** Please note - these digital design principles are designed specifically for nonprofits and their funders, so while they will also be relevant to other types of organisation, this event is primarily intended for those two groups and individuals/organisations that support them. If you're unable to attend in person, we'll be livestreaming it on the Tech for Good Facebook page - simply tune in here at the start of the event: https://www.facebook.com/techforgood/

    What we're about

    We believe that it's never been easier to use digital technology to tackle some of the world's toughest social and environmental challenges.

    Tech for Good London is a meetup group that brings together hackers, coders, developers and designers with people who really understand a social problem and want to build digital solutions to social challenges.
