August 2022

Civi provided by Circle

Thursday 11th August, 2022 - 10:00 to 11:00

About this event

Healthwatch England will be withdrawing provision of Civi by March 2023.

A number of Healthwatch have expressed interest in continuing to use Civi, but provided directly by Circle rather than Healthwatch England.

Healthwatch England circulated an indicative cost for hosting and maintenance. We have carried out further work on the Circle offer.

These two events will explore the Circle offer in more detail and talk through the support needs of Healthwatch and our plans to support data sharing with Healthwatch England. We’ll share questions and answers about how it will work. You’ll inform Healthwatch England about how the offer could best work so we can brief Circle before they meet potential customers.

Healthwatch England will circulate an outline of the offer and timeline in advance of the meeting.

These two events are part of a series we are holding for Healthwatch affected by the changes to Civi – using Excel and Power Bi (25 July and 9 August) and opting for an alternative system to Civi, such as CharityLog or Salesforce (8th and 18th of August).

Type of event

This event will provide a means for Healthwatch to share their approaches and inform Healthwatch England of the different solutions, approaches and support needs.

Who is this event for? 

The event is for anyone at Healthwatch who is involved in decisions about databases/data capturing systems and their use. More than one person from a Healthwatch can attend.

  • The timetable and steps for transition from Healthwatch England to Circle provision of Civi
