Event Information

We're afraid this event is now sold out. Please sign up to our waiting list and we’ll be in touch with upcoming dates or if any spaces become free.

Could you use some help with designing your charity’s online services? Need advice on how to best transfer face-to-face services into a virtual space? Or want to redesign or improve an existing digital service? Then a Design Hop can help! 

A Design Hop teaches charity participants a step-by-step method for user centred digital design. It’s based on an internationally recognised design process.

What you’ll gain:

  • ​Confidence with digital and reusing a design process in future

  • ​Crucial new insights and knowledge about tech habits and needs of your users

  • ​Your own minimum viable product (a ‘starter solution’) to take away to solve a real problem

  • ​A fresh new network of other charities and experts using digital for good

What you’ll give: 

  • A time commitment of around 1-2 days on Hop activities over the five-week period.  Please only sign up if you can commit to this.

  • Attendance at three 1.5-hour Zoom sessions (outlined above); it’s essential to attend all three, so please only sign up if you are able to do this. 

  • Obviously nothing in terms of funds: it’s totally free! (As a point of interest, the course has been valued at £240, but is currently free thanks to funding received by CAST.)

How it works:

​The Hop will run over five weeks, starting on Thursday 16th September. There’ll be three group Zoom sessions, with learning and practical activities in between.

This Hop is for nonprofits based in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. If you’re based in Scotland please sign up for the Scottish Design Hop here, starting on 7th September. It's run by Digital for Good and CAST, supported by SCVO.

If these dates don’t work for you but you’re interested in attending a Hop, please sign up to our waiting list and we’ll be in touch with upcoming dates.
