If you are from a charity, community or voluntary group, and want help to use social media better, then please search for a surgery and sign up for one. If you want to volunteer to help at a surgery (and experience some #socialglow) please do the same. If you just want to run one surgery on a voluntary basis, register now. If you want to run several surgeries and measure their impact contact us. There have been surgeries in more than 150 places in the last 5 years with more than 3000 groups helped. We've won a number of awards - including One from the British Prime Minister, the a Big Society Award - which we think is fab.

    The more detail you enter the more accurate the results. So if you put 'Sheffield' we will measure from the middle of Sheffield. If you enter your street name or postcode then we can usually be fairly accurate.

What is a social media surgery?

A social media surgery is an informal gathering of people who want to learn how to use the web to communicate, campaign or collaborate. Read more

How do I get involved?

If you want help – to talk to someone and see if social media is useful for you – book a place at your nearest surgery. If you want to offer social media help to voluntary and community organisations, please do the same. If you want to start your own surgery, please register.

Register your existing surgery

If you already run a social media surgery and would like to add it to this site, please register first. You can then add a new surgery to this site from your dashboard.
