DTS are excited to announce that we will be speaking at the Design Fringe Festival. The panel will be chaired by Matt Hunter.
Where are we now and where are we going? Design in the third sector panel
Service design used by a growing number of charities in different ways, from setting the foundations to delivering services. Unlike many other types of organisation, charities have the unique opportunity to use service design to put real needs first. Join our expert panel as we uncover how service design is being used in the charity sector, the impact it’s having and the direction it’s going in.
This discussion will examine the different approaches teams are taking to put the needs of people first. We’ll talk about the lessons learnt along the way, and raise the question, where are we going? The eclectic panel will each bring their own point of view and experience.
Our charity representatives will each talk through their work before having an open discussion with the chance for questions from the audience.
