New Volunteering Platform coming online

The Empowering Communities Partnership is pleased to announce that Voluntary Norfolk will be launching a new Volunteering Platform at the beginning of July 2022.  The new platform, developed in partnership with Deedmob, will replace the current system, Simply Connect and will offer exciting new ways to connect organisations and people looking to volunteer across the county.

What is Deedmob?

Deedmob is a social business based in the Netherlands that uses technology to develop volunteering. They have developed the new Platform, based on its experience of developing systems to recruit and deploy volunteers across Europe and beyond and they have recently started working in the UK.  Examples of sites they have developed with other volunteer centres in the UK can be seen here Home | Spark a Change, Home | GoVolHerts.  They have had very positive feedback about how easy the platform is to work with and the impact it has at a local level.

When is this happening?

Voluntary Norfolk Volunteer Centre staff will be contacting all regular users of the current Volunteering Platform to guide them through the changeover to the new site.  If you would like to find out more about the new Platform, do come along to our Good Practice Session on Thursday June 9th from 10 – 11 am. Sign up for the Good Practice Event here Good Practice Workshop: Introducing Our New Volunteering Platform Tickets, Thu 9 Jun 2022 at 10:00 | Eventbrite

At this session we will be demonstrating the new site and telling you more about what it can offer you. This will be followed up with some small workshops during June and July for anyone who would like additional help in setting up their Deedmob page.
