Galvanising the network—Actionable Stories

To support more peer-to-peer learning, we’ve developed a format for charities to rapidly share their experiences of digital with others—all we need now are your stories.

To speed up charities’ digital learning, Catalyst is compiling 50 ‘actionable stories’: extremely succinct case studies that are designed to help charities learn from each other’s experiences.

The key difference between these and traditional case studies is that our focus is on practical advice—both positives and pitfalls—of how to deploy digital in your organisation, and that they’ll include to resources, agencies and tools.

We have already gathered sample stories from Food Foundation, Islington Centre for Refugees and Migrants and Mencap, and are now looking for more charities to profile.

We’re interested in micro, small and medium organisations and it’s absolutely fine to be quite early in your digital journey. For many charities, taking those first steps in digital can be the most daunting, so do not be deterred if you consider your organisation to be in the foothills of change, rather than at the summit.

We’re also building up a group of professionals to provide feedback on our story draft. If you’d like to join the group please contact us via this form.

If you’d like to be among those organisations we profile please email us. We collect information for each new case study via online questionnaire and telephone interview to try to take as little time out of your schedule as possible.
