What is it?

Do you feel like your charity needs help with technology and their digital approach? Is your organisation taking advantage of the potential technology tools and digital platforms available to you? 

DOT PROJECT are running a Digital Leadership programme that is for leaders of voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations who want to increase their impact through the use of technology.  This is not about becoming a digital expert, it’s about leadership in a digital world.

Being digital is about maximising the opportunities technology can provide when it works with the people and teams across the organisation.

Who are DOT Project?


DOT PROJECT is a female-led enterprise deeply committed to the possibilities of a positive relationship between technology and humanity. They are working towards a future where people flourish through responsible technology. 

DOT PROJECT recognise that some charities are really embracing technology and digital platforms and are progressive, but on the whole there is a lack of funding to support small to medium-sized charities to strengthen skills across the organisation.

Over the past few years, DOT PROJECT have worked with social enterprises who support people with disabilities, vulnerable and marginalised groups and supported The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) to increase the visibility of initiatives which support diversity in technology and the creative industries.
