We’re living through unprecedented, uncertain times. The Coronavirus crisis is changing how charities use digital to work, fundraise, and offer services.
You may be wondering how to adapt your ways of working and services, or looking at what you need to do next about digital. We've got some resources to help.
One of the Code’s partners, The Catalyst, is currently researching how charities are adapting to this new reality and engaging with digital. We’ll be supporting what they learn about user needs by updating this page regularly with resources to help you.
If you'd like to talk to an expert about any digital challenges you're facing during Covid-19, book a free 1 hour consultation on Digital Candle.
