With the Charity Digital Code, charities now have a sector-wide standard showing how they can better fulfil their charitable purpose in a digital age. The code has been developed following an extensive collaboration between the Charity Commission, the Co-Op foundation, Lloyds digital inclusion team, and the Office for Civil Society, plus an extensive group of over 150 charities who provided input and feedback.
The result is a refreshingly simple code which allows the charity sector as a whole to take stock of where it is today, and where it needs to go tomorrow.
At Hubbub, we think the Charity Digital Code is fantastic, we’ve been really pleased to have been able to feed in our own experiences to contribute to its development. To help make the code easier to understand and get started with, we've teamed up with our friends at The Digital Collective to produce this quick assessment tool. We encourage every charity to take a look at the code and see where digital offers the biggest opportunity to take its own cause forward.
