The majority of UK not-for-profit organisations say they need support developing their digital skills. Despite this, 1 in 5 don’t know where to turn for help, and are facing transformation alone.
Digital transformation is happening. And for not-for-profit organisations, this means a growing need to embrace new ways of working. Digital transformation in this sector isn’t always easy. Especially as there are multiple factors that not-for-profits will need to take into account, like…
- Migrating services to the digital space
- Identifying and implementing new technologies
- Ensuring online services are accessible to users
- Keeping staff, volunteers, and users safe online
- Communicating digitally with users and supporters
- Facilitating collaboration between remote workers
It’s not surprising to learn that over 50% of UK charities say that one of their greatest areas of focus right now is enhancing the skills of their team, and building their digital knowledge and confidence.
It’s also unsurprising to discover that 1 in 3 charities say they are performing poorly at managing and analysing data; that 44% have noticed a digital knowledge gap, and that nearly a quarter are not confident in their digital safeguarding efforts. It’s clear that greater levels of support are needed.
But where can they go for the support they need?
That’s the problem. It seems that many don’t know who they can turn to.
Research shows that the majority of UK not-for-profit organisations say they need support developing their digital skills. Despite this, 1 in 5 don’t know where to turn for help, and are facing transformation alone. This can result in a higher risk of errors, wasted time and high costs. All this will greatly impact an organisation’s ability to support those who need them, now and in the future.
Not-for-profit organisations are essential to our society. And it’s important that they realise they are not alone – that the right help and support is out there.
