VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Voices - protecting your identity

The incredible Voices charity are based in Bath supporting women who have experienced Domestic Abuse.  They are looking for some support around protecting yourself online

We have a client who has had to deal with online stalking and harassment in the past, who now has an ongoing concern about the safety of electronic devices and of any form of online presence. We are looking for someone from the tech community who might be able to meet with her and a Voices member of staff at our office in Bath to provide some advice and insights into tech security and online privacy.

BANES Carers Centre - Google Analytics

We really need someone who could give us max half a day to help our communications team better understand Google Analytics. GA is key to helping improve our evaluation and directing our communications strategy.

Please get in touch with annie@dotproject.coop if you have a few hours to support these charities.

Thanks all!

Annie, Helen, Cat & Ed
