  • Fat Beehive are delighted to be sponsoring the Digital Innovation of the Year category at The Third Sector Awards on Thursday 20th September.

    All charities recognise that digital has a huge role to play in meeting service user’s needs. Each of the four finalists has come up with a brilliant idea to harness new technology to help solve some of the hardest problems facing society.

  • According to a survey carried out by leading baby charity Tommy’s, 67% of women plan for three or more months for a holiday, while just 20% plan for three or more months for a pregnancy. It’s this startling fact and other research into women’s health and pregnancy that led Tommy’s to approach Fat Beehive. Together we created a digital tool that not only helps women plan for pregnancy but also makes sense of the many factors that may affect their chances of having a safe and healthy pregnancy.

     

  • Last year, more than 6,000 people took their own lives in the UK and Republic of Ireland.

    Men are three times more likely to take their own lives compared to women, and suicide remains the biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK.

    But suicide is preventable, and help is always out there.

  • Attention economics is an approach to the management of information that treats human attention as a scarce commodity and applies economic theory to solve various information management problems. Put simply, “Attention is a resource—a person has only so much of it.”

  • There are millions of registered organ donors in the UK, but sadly three people still die every day in need of a transplant. Therefore, this Organ Donation Week 2018, NHS Blood and Transplant are campaigning for Words Save Lives. It’s a devastating fact that many donation opportunities are lost every year because families haven’t discussed whether they want to be donors or not. This is crucial to enable organ donation to take place.

    This is a subject that’s particularly close to my heart, as I’ve seen first hand the priceless effect that organ donation can have on a life. On the 8th September, I will be taking part in the Thames Path Challenge 100km walk (non stop, overnight) to raise funds for The British Liver Trust.

  • Doing things differently

    5 September 2018

    TAP LDN is a new charity that gives homeless people contactless card readers to sell art cards themed on a issue in the news, providing them an income and raising money for local charities testing the changing habits of Londoners who no longer carry cash.

  • #TogetherForChange

    10 July 2018

    No one should feel like they should suffer baby loss alone. Today, Tommy’s launched an incredible new campaign ‘Together for change‘, calling for more open and kind discussion to challenge the stigma of silence around baby loss. The campaign highlights the effects that social media can have through a series of videos and a new community forum.  By increasing awareness about baby loss, we can increase the chances of support available by breaking the taboo and shame that come attached to it.

  • At Fat Beehive, we’re known for our pragmatism. We innovate when we can but we also make really sensible websites that will last our clients for many years to come. And the same applies to UX.

    We insist that every project starts with a user experience phase – a beautiful collision of site architecture, content, organisational needs and ultimately, what users of the site want and will use. Exactly what this discovery phase entails depends on factors ranging from how much they understand their users, to how well they know their content to, of course, time and the dreaded question of budget. The charities we work with have money to spend to get it right, but they also need to spend it wisely.

     

  • Have your say on the UK’s Charity Digital Code consultation.

    The code has been devised to help charities benchmark their progress in digital and to inform key decisions in this area.

  • As part of its 10th anniversary celebrations, convenience store chain Nisa Locally’s charitable funding arm Making a Difference Locally has launched a competition offering £10,000 apiece to 10 charities. Any UK charity with an annual income of £100,000 or less is eligible to enter the competition.
