Derby City Social Media Surgery  

No upcoming dates

Volunteers are offering social media help to voluntary and community groups in the Derby City area in a relaxed, informal setting.

Tools like blogs, podcasts, video and social networks can give a real boost to voluntary sector organisations. In a relaxed and friendly atmosphere individuals can find one-to-one help and support from local experts who give their advice freely because they want to make a difference.

As an organisation 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, or perhaps you think Facebook or Twitter 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

The Derby Social Media Surgery takes place at the Community Action offices on Charnwood Street. It's free to attend event and aimed at voluntary sector organisations and local charities who require help, advice, hints and tips on specific social media problems.

A limited number of places are available so please register to attend.
