Digital Candle is a free service which matches up anyone working for a charity or civil society organisation and in need of digital, data and design advice, with a volunteer expert who can provide it. Charities ask a question on the site, and are matched with one of 300+ experts for free advice and support over a one-hour call.

It’s that simple! There is no ‘catch’: charities won’t be added to any mailing lists or contacted by agencies wishing to sell their services. They simply receive one hour of free advice on the topic of their choice, from an expert who has volunteered their services to help charities better understand digital. 

Since launching in February 2020, the service has matched 450 charities and experts, and has received consistently positive feedback from both (please see this tweet for a short testimonial video).
