Digital Trustees Matchmaking Event

Hosted by 100% Digital Leeds

Leeds Digital Volunteering Partnership is working with Third Sector Lab to host an online matchmaking event to connect professionals from tech, data, design, IT and other digital backgrounds with connect charities looking for Digital Trustees.

Digital Trustees are individuals with experience in digital, data or design who volunteer their time to sit on the Board of a charity and offer their expertise to help charities improve their digital strategy and capabilities. They provide guidance to the organisation around how they can best make use of digital as well as insight into best digital practices, helping the charity adapt to the changing landscape of technology.

Volunteering to support a charity as a Digital Trustee helps individuals develop their leadership skills, make a real impact on the future of a cause they care about, and feel connected to the city.

In today’s digital age, charities face new challenges and opportunities that require them to adapt to the changing landscape of technology. According to the 2023 Charity Digital Skills Report, 78% of charities say digital is now more of a priority and 66% are interested in making use of emerging technology. However, 73% say they don’t feel prepared to respond to the opportunities and challenges it brings, with fewer than half having a strategy to focus their approach to digital transformation.

Charities that recruit volunteers with digital skills to their Board of Trustees can tap into their expertise to develop effective digital strategies, enhance their digital presence, and ultimately achieve their goals more efficiently.

Leeds Digital Volunteering Partnership (LDVP) is made up of representatives from 100% Digital Leeds, Leeds Community Foundation, Voluntary Action Leeds, and the city’s tech sector. LDVP fosters cross-sector partnerships that help the city’s third sector organisations benefit from the digital skills and capacity of the tech sector, and to enable tech businesses and their employees to gain new skills, experience, and a sense of community through work with not-for-profit organisations.
