Digital Charities is a group of over 900 people working in and for not-for-profit organisations, mostly in the UK. We share knowledge and help each other deliver compelling online campaigns, content and experiences for our supporters. New members and ideas for sessions are always welcome.

We meet from 4-6pm on the first Wednesday of the month, usually at the offices of one of our members, in London. We also share and discuss things in our online Slack team, and we’re on Twitter and Facebook too, obviously.

Below you’ll find notes of past meetings and advanced warning of future ones.
