We're a community of digital professionals who want to help organisations in need.

Our Mission

Our Mission is simple: to help charities and small businesses get the essential digital skills they need.
How we do it? We match organisations in need with digital experts to offer one to one conversations and practical webinars for free.

Our story

As the Covid-19 crisis started to unfold, we were amazed by the amount of volunteers who joined the NHS. We realised that thousands of smaller organisations - like businesses, charities and social enterprises - also needed their own small army of volunteers.

Many aspects of everyday work and life have been disrupted. Small businesses and charities are particularly vulnerable. They need new digital ways of working and connecting with people to stay afloat. From building a website, to launching digital advertising, to scaling up delivery for e-commerce, many could do with a hand from experts who've done this all before.

That's why we launched Digital Boost. We believe we have a duty to help smaller organisations, and that many professionals with digital skills feel the same way.
