#BigSociety summarised their aim

#BigSociety summarised their aim in one sentence as “a dating app for volunteers”!  They want potential volunteers to be able to find opportunities that are a perfect match for their availability and skills.  This will allow volunteer hours to be used more effectively, and by providing full information regarding what the volunteer role entails, and what skills are required, create a better volunteering experience.

The ideal is for the app to allow matches to happen in a timely fashion, so as to link in with funding opportunities on offer, and also offer the possibility to track the volunteer hours being utilised.

Team #BigSociety are

Mark, a web developer; James, a development officer; Julie, the Enterprise, Innovation & Funding Officer in the Communities team at Aberdeen City Council; Jan, an information systems analyst; and Brian, the Chair at Altens & Cove Community Association.
