The Charity Digital Code of Practice has launched a COVID-19 digital checklist to support charity leaders during this difficult time.

The checklist aims to help charity trustees and leaders make the right digital decisions, evaluate key decisions, assess progress so far and create a consistent understanding of their charity’s digital goals.

The checklist is split into 7 categories which include remote working, fundraising and governance.

COUNCIL RENEWS GUILDHALL AGREEMENT

An historic landmark in Newcastle town centre which dates back to 1713 is busy, full of life and providing a useful range of services to the local community.

That is the conclusion of a 12-month arrangement with Support Staffordshire who have agreed to continue managing the Guildhall while its long-term future is decided.

The county-wide voluntary sector support organisation took over the running of the iconic building, opening a community and voluntary sector hub, in January 2019 following the relocation of Council staff to Castle House.
