This session will offer a mix practical tips and experiences of charities both small and large. We’ll also have time for some much needed peer-to-peer discussions too. 

If you’d like to share your experience of developing and using social media crisis plans, please email Vanessa at with your pitch.

About the Social Media Network

This networking group looks to address a gap for strategic and professional development of social media leads working in charities and not-for-profit organisations.

Each meeting will offer a safe space for members to chat about working in charity social media, with the focus of discussions on strategy-led topics. This is a space to learn together and share best practice, challenges, successes and inspiration with your peers.

Attending the Social Media Network events is free and exclusive to CharityComms organisational and individual members (charities only).

In between events, stay in touch with your peers via the Facebook Group CharityComms Social Media Network
