How Neighbourforce helps local groups
Neighbourforce will provide the technology, the operating infrastructure, and the support systems, to help group leaders run neighbourhood volunteering groups.
Each group that is part of the Neighbourforce collective will retain its local autonomy, but will use shared systems (all with extremely user-friendly interfaces). This will help solve the difficult problems for group leaders, such as data protection, safeguarding, health and safety, and easy management of volunteer and client information.
So local group organisers can "do their thing" - co-ordinating volunteers - without always worrying that they might be doing "the wrong thing" by mistake.
We're starting by building a prototype technology platform, based on integrating software from Airtable, Softr and Zapier. This platform will be continually improved. We know how important it is for technology used by volunteers to be straightforward and user-friendly.
From day one, we will provide a volunteer portal where volunteers can securely sign up to your group, and update their skills, contact details and preferences. We will also provide a co-ordinators' portal where your group's co-ordinators can record and allocate jobs. We'll provide virtual helplines and voicemail, email and webpages where you need it.
All our services are provided for an affordable monthly or annual cost. We can even support your group to find the funding to cover this cost, and groups that are unable to do so may be supported by our sponsors.
Please get in touch using the contact form below, if you'd like to know more, or if you'd like your group to be among the first to join the collective.
