The Community How To website - www.communityhowto.com - brings together top digital tools for community organisations under one roof, alongside case study recommendations by the community workers already putting them to good use.
The idea is to help people working in communities to find the tools that can help them do more of what they do best - grouping them under common community activities like managing projects and events, recruiting volunteers, communicating with different audiences and measuring or evaluating impact.
By registering on the site, visitors can also add their own tools and case studies, rate tools, leave comments and join discussions with community peers.
The website was launched in November 2012 and had more than 10,000 users in the first six months of its life. It was originally an output of a wider programme funded by Nominet Trust, based on the very simple observation that third sector organisations are still lagging behind in the adoption of new technologies and tools. It is now a core part of Tinder Foundation’s work to ensure all community organisations can find the tools they need to achieve as much as they can.
