Volunteers are offering social media help to voluntary organisations, community groups, charities, clubs and societies in a relaxed, informal setting.
No boring speeches, no jargon.
This surgery can also offer help with using data or government open data to gather evidence or make a case. Besides that we can offer advice and practical help to blog, use video or social networks like Twitter and Facebook to give a real boost to campaigning organisations, often for no or little cost.
So these experts are offering you approachable one-to-one help and support because they believe it can help. You might just want to see what is possible and go away and think about it. You might be itching to set up a blog and start using it. Perhaps you think video might help you tell your story but don't know where to start? All is possible.
There'll be no lectures, just people with knowledge, ideas and a passion to help you make best use of the internet for your group or organisation.
You're welcome along to receive help, or volunteer to give it but if you're coming along to offer some help don't forget your laptop!
