At the end of 2010, CDI Apps for Good received a grant from Nominet Trust to develop an e-learning and networking platform to support and scale the Apps for Good programme. The funding provided for an 18-month project scope and build of our organisation’s first product. The project taught me valuable lessons about product management, particularly when building a product essential to your organisation’s survival.
Nominet Trust are funding up to 25 charity websites to receive funding to help redesign their website on the Raising IT platform. Several charities are already signed up to the funding and places are going fast. The application is quick and easy and successful charities will receive a minimum of £14,400 of funding.
We've been running a social media programme to help voluntary organisations to set up and implement a social media strategy. The key learning that has come from the programme is the benefit that has come from delivering hands on support over 2 x 3 hours sessions with each client.
