Free Social Media Help for Voluntary Organisations

Volunteers in North Birmingham – including the B44’s Andy Mabbett – are running a series of drop-in “Social Media Surgeries” to help local voluntary organisations develop an on-line presence.

Anyone from a not-for-profit organisation, whether a registered charity or just a community group, can get help with Twitter, Facebook, bogging, digital photography, video making, and more. And there’s no charge!

There are three venues, the nearest to B44 is Costa Coffee, at Princess Alice Drive (near Tesco). Surgeries there are on 26 March, 28 May (changed from 20 May) and 15 July, each at 6pm.

Further sessions are at St. Barnabas Church cafe, Erdington high Street, on 18 April (10:30am), 16 May (2:30pm), 13 June (10:30am) and 11 July (2:30pm).

The third venue is Falcon Lodge Community Centre, Churchill Parade Sutton Coldfield B75 7LB. Surgeries there are on 22 April and 19 June, both at 10am.

All sessions last for an hour and a half, but you can drop in at any point. Equipment is provided, though you can bring your own if you need help using it.

More details, and other venues further afield, are on the Social Media Surgery website.
