Nowadays every organisation “needs” spreadsheets, documents, emails etc. and there are two obvious big players in the market – Microsoft (Office 365) and Google (Docs and G-Suite).

Both are very good office toolsets but if you are on a budget (as most voluntary organisations are) Google Docs probably wins it by virtue of being free ! You get a lot for ‘nothing’ – but there is the odd rough edge (not many though to be fair). For £0 cost it has to be worth a look !


If you like it enough you can upgrade to the paid version for around £3 per month – which has 30GB of online storage space as well.

Having said that the free version should work fine for most small clubs/groups.
