The Charity Digital Skills Report is an annual survey, which aims to:

  • Map charities digital priorities in the current climate.
  • Understand the key trends in how charities’ use of digital is changing.
  • Measure where charities have skills gaps, and what they need to grow their digital knowledge and confidence.
  • Gather data on what funding and support needs charities have to help them move forward with digital, so that we can take these findings to grant makers and recommend what they need to do more effectively.
  • Help charities to reflect on their digital progress and challenges, as well as benchmark this against others.

The 2022 report was supported by Comic Relief, The Clothworkers Foundation, M-hance and Digital Wonderlab.
