Welcome to Tribe Volunteering App

3VA are supporting the promotion of a digital volunteering app called Tribe The platform helps connect Volunteer Involving Organisations with individuals in their area who either want to help, or who need help and can be used in several ways including:

  • recruit volunteers
  • advertise services
  • support existing volunteers
  • promote events
  • and more
Tribe can help your organisation’s opportunities reach more potential volunteers.
It is free to list opportunities on Tribe and we recommend taking a look and registering your organisation on The Tribe Project where Staff there can talk you through how to register your organisation on the platform and take you through the process of directly posting your volunteer opportunities. You can also find out more and ask for all the help you need by booking some one-to-one support for your organisation by contacting Bronze Labs directly at Tribe @ Bronze Software Labse-Innovation CentrePriorsleeTelfordTF2 9FT+44 (0)1952 288 215support@tribeproject.org
