A recent NetSquared London Meetup investigated the IT tools that can be used to get charity operations done cheaply and effectively and how charities can tackle the process of finding the tech that helps the most when you don't necessarily have the time to research. This recent Meetup saw over 50 people from the charity sector discuss how tech can be used to help boost productivity.

Matt Moorut from Technology Trust kicked things off by noting, from his own experience and from working with others, that it's often difficult for charities to get organisational support for new tools, especially if they aren't 100% free or if they require people in the team to learn new ways of working.

The Charity Digital Toolkit is a great set of resources to help get you started on your digital journey and can help support existing digital advocates within a non-profit to persuade others
