The social media phenomenon has been a big hit with charities and other Third Sector organisations as a fun, dynamic, fast (and free) way to engage with the public. 

 

The results can be powerful in a positive….and a negative way.

Examples of things that a charity should consider when engaging with social media are:

  • Uses of Social Media – fundraising through social media, sharing information, networking, creating opportunities.
  • Trustees' Duties – policy decisions, risk management.
  • Managing Employees – encouraging creativity balanced with reputation management and the protection of staff, volunteers and beneficiaries.
  • Putting in place a Social Media Policy, Strategy and Training – writing and communicating a tailored policy that suits your organisation and what it stands for.
  • The law – Equality Act, data protection, confidential information, bullying, harassment, gross misconduct, dismissals...

Seminars and Training

As well as advising in these areas, the Wrigleys Charities Team regularly provides popular seminars and tailored internal training sessions for organisations who want to know more about Social Media from a legal and risk perspective.

"Superb, very helpful!"  "Case Law particularly interesting/relevant"

- Seminar delegates

"I think the main reason we enjoy working with them is because we feel that they sympathise with our cause and understand why we are driving for what we want."

- Chambers & Partners
