09 Apr Launch of All In UK – a national platform coordinating support groups, charities and community foundations during COVID-19
We are all in, are you? All In UK launches nationwide community support coordination platform providing everything local groups need to take on the fight against COVID-19 and protect the vulnerable in their area.
The new platform offers a single location for isolated and vulnerable people to find their local support groups and has been launched in response to COVID-19. Available nationally, in every county, anybody can use the site to find help locally, or to volunteer for high-demand community services.
The platform provides support groups, community organisations, public bodies and businesses everything they need to coordinate their local fight against COVID-19 with free mapping, the ability to manage their support requests and volunteer base, fundraise and manage communications with a suite of coordinated tools.
Originally Set up by Oxfordshire charity KEEN with support from local businesses and volunteers, AllinUK.org has already put coronavirus support groups in Oxfordshire firmly on the map. 400 groups have registered, over 30,000 people have signed up to volunteer and Oxfordshire County Council has endorsed the community services the website provides.
“With so many support groups springing up to respond to the impact of COVID-19, we want to make it easy for people to find nearby help quickly when they need it, and to help organisations coordinate more effectively at a local level. The All in UK website is proving very successful in Oxfordshire and we are now looking to build out a national network of services using the technology platform we have created,” said Rupert da Silva, Director at KEEN, who is leading the initiative.
All In UK is looking for local support groups across every county to register at www.allinuk.org and take their support to the next level and make the most of the tools available.
