Welcome to our


To build a better charity sector we need to work together.

So for digital and data projects at NPC we're trying out a radical new approach. Instead of developing programmes on our own, we're openly sharing all our ideas for the sector, no matter what stage they're at.

So have a look through, suggest more ideas, tell us what you think and, if there's something you're interested in teaming up on, get in touch!

Open Impact

Digital technologies, the technologies we are building together- that we have already embedded in almost all aspects of our lives - have enormous potential to change society for the greater good. But the social sector faces two big problems in realising this potential...

Ethical Analytics

What if there was an ethical alternative to commercial web analytics for charities to measure their impact?

Open knowledge for the social sector

What if there was an open, collaborative platform for publishing, where we could easily share what we've learned, find relevant research that's already been done, and build on each others' work instead of reinventing the wheel?

Design systems for the social sector

What if there was an easily searchable library of user research along with tried and tested design patterns to shortcut the effort needed to develop new services in the social sector and make services better?

TOC builder

What if there was a digital platform for developing a simple theory of change, which steps you through the process with integrated training and guidance?

Personal data charter

What if charities committed to a shared set of principles and standards for how they collect and use personal data? Could we drive better use of data (and increased impact) while also improving transparency and accountability to users?

R+D collaboration accelerator

How can established charities form new collaborations, connect with cutting edge research and tap into the tech talent of the UK? What if there was a Digital Catapult for charities?

Digital capacity on demand

What if there was a way to access digital capacity for your charity on demand without expensive tendering processes, taking a risk on an unknown freelancer or losing knowledge and continuity between projects? Could you have a digital team timeshare?

Digitising our training

NPC already offers a wide array of high-quality in-person training to help organisations increase their impact. What if we could translate this online to reach even more people?
