Digital Charities

The community for people working in digital in the not‑for‑profit space.

Better together

We're a peer-run community of around 2,500 people working in and for not-for-profit organisations, mostly in the UK. We share knowledge and ideas, we fix each others' problems and we help each other deliver online campaigns, digital content and tech solutions. New members and ideas for meetups are always welcome.

We have a Slack-based online space, with channels where we discuss jobs, content and UX, analytics and much more. We regularly have meetups, often with speakers, either online, or in real life, mostly in London. We usually meet on the first Wednesday of the month, 4-6pm, and mostly continue the conversation in a pub afterwards. Fill in the form below to apply to join us.

Who we are

Members of the group include digital campaigners, web editors and digital managers from ActionAid, Greenpeace, UNICEF, Friends of the Earth and many more. Many of our members are in the UK, but we welcome people from all over the world. The community was born out of Make Poverty History in 2005, and has been going ever since.

The current chairs are Gemma Hampson from Hactar, Julius Honnor from Contentious, Neil Gunn, who's worked for the Ramblers and WWF, and AilĂ­n Martinez from Medecins Sans Frontieres.

You can contact the chairs through Slack. You'll also occasionally find us on Twitter.
