Developed alongside Lloyds Bank Foundation, Embrace Finance and Marvix Enterprises
The Organisational Resilience programme was developed to support charities to develop their own resilience. It was developed with small charities, for small charities. It takes 10 Principles as the basis of a resilient organisation and supported charities to examine themselves through these Principles.
The OR programme also supported a place approach to examining resillience, recognising that many of the factors that directly or indirectly affect a charities resilience are not always within their control. Through the place approach, people can look at resilience in a cross sector way and develop collaborative approaches to improved resilience.
An OR Guide is include below for you to use freely. We have several facilitators who are experienced in deliverying this for your organisation. If you would like to discuss a facilitated approach for you organsation, or within a peer or place group please get in touch.

We currate and host the Good-data.co.uk site which is an ever expanding set of free resources, sources and reading on data for the social sector.
This is a collection of resources, and ideas to help small social purpose organisations with data. It was put together by Tom Watson for #DoItMakeItShareIt on 26/02/2021 and updated after Data4GoodFest It is a work in progress**.** If you would like to add or share resources, tools, data sources then please use the google docs located under ADD THINGS.

Research on CAST Design Hops
Working with Tom French and Renesai we undertook some research on behalf of CAST into their Design Hop programme. This involved both quantitative and qualitative data analysis, as well as recomendations for data improvements.
Catalyst News - What we learned from researching Design Hops
Between June and October 2020, we ( Amanda Norrlander from Renaisi, Tom French and Tom Watson from The Good Ship) came together to research and evaluate the Design Hop - a short course which introduces the main concepts of digital service design to charities.
This was one of the first examples of us using 'live outputs' - meaning we presented back a live Airtable as the key output rather than a report.
