We also record details of our interactions with you – for example feedback on training delivery and notes of discussions about checkup responses. These details will be recorded and stored.

We will use this data to offer your organisation support to develop in the areas of Digital Participation and Evolution through the delivery of:

Tailored training courses for staff and volunteers (that you select), and ongoing support for delegates to implement the training.

One to one support (phone calls and face to face meetings) to help your organisation become more digitally mature.

Leadership development programme with monthly meetings and interactive support from SCVO Digital team.
