Earlier this week Tina and Patrick from Embracing Age gave a detailed and insightful talk about their journey to adopt CiviCRM at CiviUsers UK. They've come a long way in a short period of time. It's impressive to see how much they've achieved on a limited budget and without a dedicated IT department.

They shared how they have successfully integrated CiviCRM into their daily operations, including:

  • Integration with Weebly CMS and Google Workspace
  • Recruitment and management of volunteers
  • Online donations (including UK Gift Aid)
  • Event management (fundraising initiatives, carer and church event management)
  • Care home resident referrals
  • Volunteer vetting and placement case management

If you missed the talk I definitely recommend watching it here:

There is a lot more detail in the slides above but here are some of the extensions that Tina and Patrick mention in their talk:
