The Innovation SuperNetwork is collaborating with VONNE to help build opportunities within the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector in the North East.
VONNE is the regional support organisation for the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector in the North East. We’re a membership organisation with over 1200 members and we work to ensure the sector is treated as an equal partner.
VONNE is encouraging and supporting the uptake of digital in our sector in a number of ways:
- Delivering a series of innovation workshops with delivery partner and innovation expert Michael Coates designed to offer local organisations a free pathway of support.
- Working with Consult & Design to deliver Social Tech meets – informal themed events for people from the digital technology and VCSE sectors with specially invited speakers.
- By creating free Design Hop workshops in partnership with the Centre for Acceleration of Social Technology (CAST) and Consult & Design. Design Hops are the first step into exploring the role of digital in the VCSE sector. By demystifying technology and design, and by putting the focus on people, not tech, they help attendees start their digital journey on the right foot.
