With the Charity Digital Code, charities now have a sector-wide standard showing how they can better fulfil their charitable purpose in a digital age. The code has been developed following an extensive collaboration between the Charity Commission, the Co-Op foundation, Lloyds digital inclusion team, and the Office for Civil Society, plus an extensive group of over 150 charities who provided input and feedback.
The result is a refreshingly simple code which allows the charity sector as a whole to take stock of where it is today, and where it needs to go tomorrow.
At the Digital Collective, we think the Charity Digital Code is fantastic, we’ve been really pleased to have been able to feed in our own experiences to contribute to its development, and we’d encourage every charity to take a look at the code and see where digital offers the biggest opportunity to take its own cause forward.
Our Charity Digital Code Quick Assessment Tool is currently offline, and we’ll return soon with an updated version drawing together the results and feedback that the code has already generated and ready to help you get digital in your team.
