Citizen Sector was set up to build and support projects that are powered by people and good for society.
So when the pandemic hit, Citizen Sector bought together a team - in conjunction with tech partner Tectonica - who have built and launched a free to use, website and app called “WeGotYou”, already available globally in both the Apple and the Google Play Store, that supports people giving and getting help, to and from their local community in order to stay at home safely during the COVID-19 crisis.
The scale of the community response required to deal with COVID-19 is unprecedented. Until a vaccine is found, there are going to be prolonged periods where many of the adult population will need to self-isolate. It’s unrealistic to expect traditional volunteering structures and statutory agencies to achieve the scale needed, only scalable neighbour-to-neighbour interactions through a digital platform stand a chance of success.
And we are here to help!
