Digital governance – who controls it?

Heads of Digital

15 October 2019

Good governance is hugely important for any charity – but who controls the governance of the digital strategy, tools and platforms? Where does the governance of digital sit within the wider organisation and who is advocating at the top table? We looked at a variety of approaches from within charities and beyond the sector too.



Your charity won’t get better at digital without doing these 3 things – Joe Freeman, digital strategist, freelance

About the Heads of Digital

This networking group is exclusively for heads of digital working in UK charities and not-for-profits with a turnover of more than £2 million.

The format of the evening is networking followed by round-table discussion, led by our excellent facilitators, feeding into the group as a whole.

The group meets three times a year to discuss strategic issues facing digital leads at large charities. The group is designed to encourage networking and peer-to-peer support, sharing issues in a ‘safe’ and relaxed environment.

If you’d like to be one of the first to hear about these events, please contact our events team to be added to the Heads of Digital mailing list.
