How can better IT improve your third sector work?

There is a frustrating amount of commentary about what charities should be doing with technology and how ill-equipped they are to do it. Third Sector, in partnership with Blue Saffron, wants to understand how IT can help third sector organisations. We know that information technology can help with recruiting and retaining staff and volunteers, improving fundraising, working more efficiently and increasing trust and transparency to the wider stakeholders but we want to hear from you. 

This survey will only take a few minutes and, as a thank you, we’ll enter you into a prize draw to win one of two IT audits from Blue Saffron, each worth in excess of £10,000.
