Ability Net was named Charity Digital Leader of the year in the 2015 Digital Leaders 100 Awards, at a glittering ceremony at the Hilton Hotel on Park Lane on Thursday evening.
The event, attended by 400 digital pioneers from the public, private and nonprofit sectors, saw the announcement of the ten category winners and the DL100 Editor’s Award, which went to Lloyds Banking Group.
The charity/social enterprise digital leader of the year award is specifically designed to recognise a charity that has played a major role in projects that enable the benefits of digital to be made available to all.
AbilityNet exists to change the lives of disabled people by helping them to use digital technology at work, at home or in education. The organisation’s professional assessors identify the mix of technologies and adaptations that enables a disabled person to be more productive in everyday life.
Charities believe corporate fundraising is a key growth area. But recent research by the IoF has revealed that just 7% of charities with a corporate fundraising programme feel that it is “fully developed”. With this in mind, Virgin Money Giving is hosting a series of free live events between 5th and 7th October to help charities grow their corporate fundraising.
