Blog Links

Below are links to blogs, podcasts and similar social media sources, covering issues of interest to people in the voluntary sector. And a selection of charity or campaign blogs working to raise awareness or cash, communicate with the public, volunteers or members.

Also: news/tips on tech and social action, examples of Open Source CMS being used by British charities, and some blogs from further afield under BlogWorld.

See VoluntaryNews for sources of news by or for the non-profit sector, and our own news stream too. Plus the main VolResource site for more on issues such as sector support bodies, why taxonomy matters.

Link checking

The bulk of this page was compiled quite a while ago, with some gradual updating from Jan. 2014. A line through the text indicates that an automated sweep found some problem with the link.
