BRIDGE: building resilience in digital growth and engagement

A comprehensive and collaborative 12-month programme to equip charities with the digital skills and capabilities they need to become more resilient organisations with more impact.

A turning point

Charities are strained by two opposing forces: increased regulation, budgetary pressures, and a lack of public trust while also facing an ever-increasing demand for their services.

Lightful believes that technology is essential to transforming the non-profit sector. While larger charities have been able to adapt and thrive thanks to dedicated staff, relevant tools, and allocated funding, smaller ones lack the support and resources for their digital presence to do justice to their high impact and work.

How BRIDGE can help

BRIDGE equips charities with the competence and confidence to flourish. We know that the most exciting and inspiring stories come from grassroots organisations – and we want to amplify these good stories. With crucial support from foundations, participants learn to embrace digital through interactive masterclasses and webinars, dedicated one-on-one support, and digital tools.
