Aimed at smaller charities wanting to make a big impact with digital, the fully-funded Fuse accelerator programme is a 12 week workshop where charities are paired up with a team of digital experts from CAST, to plan and build a new digital service or product for them to take to pilot.
Chairites that have worked with CAST so far include Breast Cancer Care and Action for Children – but now the organisation is seeking out smaller charities to boost their digital innovation and knowledge.
CAST is asking charities with annual income of £1m or less to share their ambitions and challenges around digital, and what would help them achieve their vision. They will use this feedback to help shape the Fuse accelerator programme, along with new programmes, resources and events aimed at smaller charities.
Charities can book a 30 minute call with CAST and in return will recieve support, expertise and connections.
Supported by organisations including Comic Relief and the Nominet Trust, CAST was launched in 2016 and has since worked with over 300 nonprofits of all sizes, with the aim of supporting them to become more resilient and responsive to the changing needs of their communities.
This includes its Digital Fellowship, where CAST works with senior charity leaders to embed digital into their organisational strategy and governance, and a bespoke consultancy service to help charities meet their unique challenges around digital.
