Asset-based community development and tech for good
INCREASE YOUR DIGITAL SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE – SUBSCRIBE TO OUR FREE MONTHLY BULLETIN DIGITAL WM NEWS HERE
RnR Organisation is a family-run social enterprise, which works to improve and increase the digital and data literacy of the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sectors. We do this through research, writing, organising and campaigning using asset-based community development methods.
Our services include our free monthly publication Digital WM News, increasing digital skills and knowledge in the VCSE sectors, and supporting the use of technology and data for impact in the collaborative economy.
We work with smaller, mission-driven organisations, especially those who want to use digital technology and data to leverage their social impact, in order to work smarter in asset-based community development programmes.
We provide project and operational management and occasional event management to smaller mission-driven organisations and SMEs in the voluntary and community sector, and to grassroots and minority cultural and community groups.
Asset-based community development
We help our clients to address their governance, communications, operations or finance management.
We apply asset-based community development principles to our work, so our clients can help themselves and others better, without becoming dependent on us for support in the long term.
As well as our free monthly #TechForGood e-bulletin Digital WM News we use social media for internal and external communications as well as email and other collaborative means of communication for different projects. We also help other organisations learn about and improve on their social media management.
We run or co-curate several Twitter accounts.
These include our own business account and dedicated Digital WM News account plus we also run or co-curate Twitter accounts for organisations we chair, like WM Funders Network and West Midlands Open Data Forum.
We also run or co-curate the Twitter accounts where we organise and run #techforgood events like Net Squared Midlands, VCSSCamp and Open Data Camp.
Tech for good and Data for good
We believe technology, improved digital literacy and the understanding, sharing and usage of the science of data and open data can help all of us in the collaborative economy do our important work better.
We can use it to free us up to spend more of our valuable time doing our core work, and other times use it to make better decisions and work smarter.
Based amongst other social innovators at Impact Hub Birmingham until it closed in November 2019, we are a catalyst in the Smart Cities ecosystem and we believe that Smart and digital systems, big and open data and Smart Cities programmes can and should help our sector to develop, deliver and monitor services and activities which better meet the needs of our clients’ beneficiaries.
