Back in November 2022 the Bolton Digital Skills programme launched with the aim of equipping 50 local charities with the confidence and skills needed to thrive in the digital space. The programme was a collaborative initiative made possible by Bolton Wanderers in the Community, a charitable organisation associated with Bolton Wanderers Football Club, and Bolton CVS (Community and Voluntary Services), a leading infrastructure organisation supporting the voluntary, community, and social enterprise sector in Bolton.
What’s the role of technology in disaster response? What do nonprofit leaders need to know to make smarter decisions with their investment in tech solutions?
Hi! My name is Pumulo Banda and I lead the Relationship Management team at Lightful, which is responsible for managing relationships with all the nonprofits that take part in Lightful’s flagship digital training programme, BRIDGE (building resilience in digital growth and engagement). I always say we’re the best/luckiest team at Lightful because we get to spend time with these inspiring organisations on a daily basis. They have fantastic stories to tell, but don't quite have the skills, knowledge or capacity to tell their stories and showcase their impact through their digital channels. We work with them to help them understand how they can use digital to do just that and I am excited that we're going to be launching an Ireland BRIDGE fund later this year.
In a world of growing uncertainty, small and local non-profit organisations often find themselves with competing priorities and struggle to plan how to allocate their available resources. Despite the increasing demand for their vital work, they are not always able to allocate the funds they receive to strategic planning and future growth.
