Community driven help with digital

legup.social is a collaborative effort to help small businesses, charities and social enterprises with digital. There is no cost to attend.

Mentorship

I work in digital and want to be a mentor

Designer? Researcher? Content designer? Product owner? Do you work in digital and want to help your local community of small business owners?

We bring digital people together with small business owners to help give insightful advice and breed collaboration. You'll have the opportunity to learn hands on and try new things aside from your day job.

Small businesses, charities or social enterprises

I’m part of a small business and need some help with digital

If you don’t work in digital, it can be very hard to know where to start. What does my service do which could be digital? Do I need digital products? How will my customers interact with me digitally?

You'll get the opportunity to interact with the digital industry and seek advice on how to venture into the digital world.

How legup.social works

You own it

legup.social is free and supported by Paper, but we don't own it, you do.

No cost

There is no cost to attend, and our digital people aren’t paid.

Our digital people are busy people

While the event is free we ask that if you want to work together outside of legup.social that you agree commercially how you’re going to work together.

No cold callers

If you want to win work, or sell your products this isn’t the place for you. It’s purely for the good of the community and those people who want to offer some time for free within our network.

Don’t be scared to ask

Our mentors provide advice and guidance based on experience, but it’s ultimately up to you whether you act on (any) of it.

You're welcome any time

We encourage first timers and repeat visitors. Please pre register before attending though.

We have a group of great mentors who have given up their time to support legup.social.
