The Digital Skills for Heritage digital volunteering programme was created following feedback from the Digital Attitudes and Skills for Heritage (DASH) survey, which identified the need for the heritage sector to create new types of volunteering opportunities that make use of digital skills. In this Reflect, Share, Inspire panel session five of the 17 heritage organisations that took part in this programme discuss their digital volunteering journeys.
