Flood Volunteers Response to UK Flooding Crisis
This post is on behalf of Taskhub
Yesterday, Taskhub built and launched a new website, Flood Volunteers, that allows volunteers to post the time, skills or equipment they can lend to those affected by flooding in the UK. If you, or anyone you know, need assistance they can find it on floodvolunteers.co.uk.
If you can help and want to volunteer, please list on floodvolunteer.co.uk so that people in flood-hit communities can reach you.
Why we did this:
We were approached by the UK government to use our resources and technical know-how at Taskhub to help facilitate the flood-relief effort. There wasn’t a website that easily allowed people on the ground to be contacted by those in need, so we created one.
How it works:
- Volunteers can list their available time, skills and equipment on the site
- Flood victims can find and contact the local volunteers on hand to help
- There are no fees; it is completely free to use and open to all
- We are contacting our network to get as many volunteers listed
- Dedicated website that has been built specifically to help flood victims
- Team Taskhub is on hand to help with any queries you have
How you can help:
- List how you can help at floodvolunteers.co.uk
- Share the site with your network to spread the word and help those in need
- Direct anyone affected by flooding to floodvolunteers.co.uk
Taskhub is continuing to connect people in need with the local people who are on hand to help and we’re proud we can contribute at this time. The floods are predicted to get worse before they get better, so we must work together to get through the flood-crisis.
