What is Community Calling?
Community Calling was formed in 2020 as a volunteer-led initiative to coordinate urgent community support across Northern Ireland in response to the pandemic. The project quickly gained traction with support reaching thousands of people in just a few months.
Since then, Community Calling have listened to the needs of the community and are working to strengthen community cohesion and build a collaborative community network with a shared goal – to get the right support to the right people at the right time, without duplication.
We use technology to provide members of the community across the whole of NI with a real time connection to providers of support .
How does it work?
When forms are submitted, information is instantly stored on our secure, central database. Our system uses technology to filter requests, in real-time, to our dedicated communication channels based on location.
Members of the community who benefit from our services are being matched with support across a wide range of needs and challenges.
