‘What’s that?” we hear you cry. It’s a way of getting people involved in good deeds, including volunteering, via a digital platform. And we’re quite excited about it. Thanks to funding from Santander and N4NE via Norfolk Community Foundation, we’re developing our very own digital social action platform. This web app will leverage support from the local community, individuals as well as businesses to help young people move forward with their dreams.
How will it work? Young people will upload their aspirations, including what’s needed to achieve them. The community will respond online with encouragement, advice, contacts, opportunities, donations and even by becoming Volunteer Tenancy Mentors. We will be asking for voluntary subscriptions to use the site and to become involved in this practical way to support young people. Subscribers will get the satisfaction of seeing them achieve their aspirations and making a local social impact. We’ll be launching it in October. Get in touch if you’re a business who would like to support young people in this way, have local social impact and improve social mobility.
