Introduction to Social Media for Charities

How can we best tell the story of our impact and what’s the best way to then share that story with the wider community?

This workshop will guide you through this process.
This workshop will introduce you to how social media tools such as Facebook, Twitter & Instagram can provide you with opportunities to share the story of your charity’s impact. 
Over the course of the session we’ll share examples of best practices in the community and voluntary sector from a range of sources.
Participants will learn how Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and other social networks can be used to communicate in a new and engaging way and ultimately to build your organisation's support base.
