We’re excited to publish the second episode of the Reclaim Social Podcast. We’ve had very positive feedback with the first episode so we’re excited to keep the podcast going!

This month we’ve talked to John McGuirk and Liam McKinnon from OTR Bristol.

Off the Record (OTR) Bristol is a mental health social movement by and for young people aged 11-25. They are providing a range of services that support and enable young people to recognise their capabilities. Social media is a key part of many of their projects as it allows them to raise their voices and form a community of people who want to support their work.

Social media, young people, and mental health

We’ve had a very interesting conversation with Liam and John and we’ve talked among other things about:

– OTR’s involvement in the #ReclaimSocial campaign and how they think social media can be a more positive tool
– The importance of using social media to connect young people to communities and each other
– The feedback they are receiving from young people who attend their training and therapeutic services
– How young people are dealing with social media
– The questions they tend to receive from young people around social media and mental health
– How we can all improve our social media posting habits with the technique of ‘active listening’
– John’s ‘Ask me Anything’ video series to encourage people to ask him questions around mental health
– How Liam started as a user at OTR
– The optimism in seeing young people using social media to drive change
– How we can all use social media and tech for good

As you can imagine, we’ve talked about many interesting topics and we promised that we’ll plan a second episode together to continue the conversation.

What makes Liam, John and everyone at OTR stand out is their passion and their enthusiasm about their work and we certainly felt inspired to support them as much as possible.

Digital mobilisation: inspiring change online

The COVID pandemic has created an urgent need for nonprofits to rapidly scale up digital advocacy and digital fundraising. Organisations need to be reaching their supporters where they are, and in 2021… they are online. A rapidly changing world post-pandemic demands new approaches to engaging the public and winning their support.

How BRIDGE helped participants raise $5 million on their year-end campaigns

Last year the COVID-19 pandemic created challenges across many sectors, but especially for nonprofits, many of which were previously reliant upon in-person events and more traditional means of fundraising. At Lightful, we’ve been working with charities to understand how the pandemic has affected the sector and what’s become evident is that digital fundraising skills are vital in adapting to the ‘new normal’ that has emerged following the pandemic.
