Online Training for Merton Organisations

If you're part of a small charity or community organisation you have no doubt been under enormous pressure over the last few months.   

COVID-19 has created a step-change in the use of digital and technology throughout our sector, creating serious challenges to delivering our desperately needed activities. And yet, there are also new opportunities, a chance to work smarter, reach more people and gather vital information about how to re-shape what we do for the future.

The latest Superhighways autumn training programme aims to help you both cope with the challenges ahead and grow towards healthier and happier times. 

Thanks to funding from both the National Lottery Community Fund and City Bridge Trust (Cornerstone Fund) their programme continues to be free. All sessions are online at this time, ranging from webinars to hands-on technical training, with many repeated over the September to December period.
