Our recent North East VCSE Sector Covid-19 impact survey highlighted that 30 per cent of organisations require more support with homeworking software, digital and communications tools and technology to help them more effectively deliver services and support to beneficiaries.
Recently, VONNE has been working with international technology firm Accenture, which has strong roots in the North East, to leverage in more support to the region's VCSE sector. Accenture has an internal Tech for Good group, which coordinates requests from charities, social enterprises and community organisations seeking IT, tech and digital support. The Tech for Good team will help find experienced volunteers from within Accenture to support and deliver specific projects and pieces of work such as:
- Website development
- Training courses for staff/ volunteers
- App development, and
- Data analysis.
If you have a particular IT/digital/tech project, challenge or issue that you would like the Accenture team to support your organisation with, please email Karen Marshall, Accenture Apprentice, Education and Engagement Lead with some information about your organisation and the support you require: firstname.lastname@example.org.
