Tonight a number of us are meeting to discuss the next steps for Edinburgh’s Social Media Surgeries. We want to see more volunteers offering help to more people in more venues across the city.
But we need YOUR help…
We need more surgeons
Could you offer some time to come along and help out? You don’t have to be an expert at everything on the web – we get people needing help at all levels and we try hard to pair them with the most appropriate volunteers.
We need more patients
We’re especially keen to see how we can engage with more local community groups, charities and voluntary organisations to help them make the most of the web and social media.
Are you involved with such groups, or do you know someone who is? Could they do with a bit of help using the web and social media to expand their reach? Tell them about us, or even better, bring them along to our next event!
We need more venues
So far, we’ve held most of our events at McDonald Road Library. That’s been great and we hope to stay there, but we would ideally be reaching out to other parts of the city too. Could you help us identify suitable venues? Maybe you run a local cafe or bar and would like to host an event? Get in touch and let us know!
