About the speaker:

Superhighways is an ICT support and development project, run by and for the voluntary and community sector and based in South London, with the specific aim of building local organisations' ICT capacities. They understand the voluntary sector well and provide a range of services including technical and strategic support and advice, ICT training, project management and consultancy and digital inclusion projects. Superhighways are well aware of limitations on budgets and capacity of the organisations they support and so work within these constraints to enable more efficient and effective service delivery in the community.

Kate White will introduce us to the world of small local charities and the support services Superhighways provide to help them better use technology to support delivery of vital services in their communities. She will explain how they go about best using limited budgets to provide technical support, website development, digital tools for evidencing and communicating impact, training for volunteers, staff and trustees and basic digital skills in the community to address digital exclusion.

Kate will talk about her role project managing multiple projects and a small team of staff and volunteers, picking out approaches and elements key to success.
