If you’ve got your head around Twitter, we recommend you follow East Sussex County Council Community feed which has lots of information on funding and grant opportunities in the East Sussex region:
Another fun idea if you’re planning an event and need some supporters is to use the hashtag #wewillgather.co.uk. Following on from the London riots clean-up campaign which was driven by Twitter, this new initiative aims to get volunteers together quickly for short projects in the community.
These two ideas show that Twitter has a lot to offer not-for-profit groups with help on funding, volunteering and plenty of advice on the Third Sector. A great introduction to Twitter, published by SCIP last year, written by Mark Walker called Get to Grips with Twitter should give you many more reasons to sign up.
