Volunteer Now Launches New Volunteering Platform
Volunteer Now is thrilled to have officially launched our new volunteering opportunity search portal in conjunction with the Be Collective platform.
This new platform, a first in Europe, cohesively connects volunteering, organisations, outcomes and social value through innovative social infrastructure and for the first time quantifies volunteering contribution by giving individuals and businesses a social ‘record’
Commenting on the new platform Denise Hayward, Chief Executive of Volunteer Now said:
“As Northern Ireland’s regional volunteering organisation, we are continually looking for innovative ways to serve our partners and provide volunteers across Northern Ireland with the support they need to find relevant opportunities.
We are thrilled to officially launch the Be Collective platform and to unveil a fresh new volunteering portal which streamlines the volunteering process for organisations, volunteers and businesses. This new technology really will revolutionise how we connect volunteers with opportunities, providing support for communities as well as delivering quantifiable and demonstrable impact for organisations investing in their people.”
Be Collective is an organisation building digital community infrastructure to support community action and social change. It is backed by over 30 years’ experience in championing social enterprise and community development projects. Founded by Rob Wise, the organisation is steeped in philanthropy with the Wise family initiating, developing and operating many social projects with the purpose of strengthening communities including high profile projects such as The Big Issue and The Body Shop in Australia.
