Download to read offline

When running an organisation or service that is reliant on the efforts of volunteers, members or a community to run and sustain itself, it can be hard to attract recruits and really tell them what you need help with. Many make it difficult to access information and get involved, with technology making accessing this information easier and easier, why not take advantage of it.

In this presentation we look at practical principles and demonstrations on how to set up pages and features on your website to show exactly what you need and how to take action. We'll also look at some general tips, advice and resources for lowering the barriers to getting engagement with your organisation, campaign or product.
