National IT platform for help during the Covid-19 Coronavirus

Timebanking UK and Made Open have launched a national IT platform called Communities Together to help all UK communities respond to the COVID-19 Coronavirus. The aim of this platform is to facilitate the exchange of offers and requests between people in communities – helping people who are self-isolating to access support and stay connected during this time of crisis. We know that the best response is a local response and as such we are putting a call-out for “street coordinators” who can perform duties to connect others by finding out who can help or who needs help. The aim of this role is to post offers / requests on behalf of other people and check that users of the platform are who they say they are. Activities will be logged which will help support our safeguarding processes. Members of the platform can also apply to become “digital champions” – helping people to use this platform and stay connected.
