In May we hosted our two-day Engaging Networks Community Conference in London. The hybrid event brought together people from around the world to learn, share and connect.
ENCC UK 2022 was an opportunity to bring together our clients, partners and staff to listen to inspiring sessions, case studies, product workshop and panels to hear how leading nonprofits are using our tools to successfully raise more money and win more campaigns.
With 21 awesome sessions and workshops over the two days, we couldn’t possibly cover them all in this blog post. So we’ve picked out a few highlights. You can access all of the sessions on our website.
From a standing start: building a digital operation
Anna Chowcat, Digital Manager at Refuge shared how the charity went from a small and reactive programme to harnessing a vast online feminist movement that changes laws and helps protects survivors of domestic abuse.
Implementing mobile wallets
The Children’s Society
In 2022, The Children’s Society launched digital wallet payment methods (Apple Pay, Google Pay and PayPal One Touch) to their pages. Matt Summers-Sparks, Developer at The Children’s Society shared the process they went through – from making the case to add these buttons, their internal review process, development, implementation, testing, launch and monitoring.

Engaging campaigners in government consultations
When the Government published its Health and Disability Green Paper last summer, the MS Society knew it was a key opportunity for their community to be heard on the changes needed to disability benefits – but these consultations aren’t often the most accessible or enticing.
Angharad Hopkinson, Senior Campaigns Officer at MS Society, shared how they adapted their Email to Target pages to empower their campaigners to share their views directly on the most pressing questions, while also informing the client’s own response to the consultation.
Spotify Wrapped for charity supporters
Refugee Action and Root to Branch
Glyn Thomas of Root to Branch and Hannah Winter of Refugee Action gave us an in-depth look at their collaboration on ‘Year In Review’ – a Spotify Wrapped-style supporter engagement tool. The tool used Engaging Networks data to give each user a personalised look at their year of support for Refugee Action, covering donations, campaign actions, engagement with events and more.

A key goal for Dignity in Dying was to build up their base of members – people who support them regularly, and are committed to their long-term mission to change the law on assisted dying. In this session, they shared how Forward Action and Dignity in Dying used Engaging Networks’ donation, landing page and email functionality to turbocharge their membership recruitment in 2021, resulting in 1,000 new members and £35,000 of income in just the first year.
