Who we work with

Can Do Bristol | a platform for social action and citywide volunteering.

“52% of our citizens already help out in their community at least 3 times a year. To make community action more accessible, we have opened the website, Can-Do Bristol, a digital platform designed purely for communities to help themselves, connecting people and businesses to projects looking for help.”

Martin Rees
Mayor of Bristol

Torbay Together | a timebanking platform and community directory.

“The Made Open platform stimulates positive social action in communities. Made Open have been brilliant partner, working with us at every stage. I cannot recommend their system and organisation enough. It’s not easy to find a partner with the same values and approach to partnership.”

Simon Sherbersky
Lead Officer, Torbay Community Development Trust

Hexitime | a national skill exchange and timebank for quality improvement.

“I am passionate about supporting people in the Health and Social Care system to improve services together and I believe this platform will allow us all to benefit from the vast amount of untapped potential in our skills and experiences to do this.”

John Lodge
Head of Quality Improvement, London region, NHS Improvement

Launceston Together | a citywide platform to foster community development.

“We listened to the day-to-day needs and challenges of our founding partners and also to the issues and ambitions of people living in local communities. Made Open were very responsive to these challenges and it has been a revelation to work with a design and technology partner who cares as much about community development as we do”.

Peter Murden
CLIP Associate

Our Monmouthshire | a crowdsourcing platform for people in Monmouthshire.

“We have always valued conversations and for the past few years we have been holding a series of forums where local people can share their ideas about solutions to the challenges we face. Made Open gives us a platform to take these conversations to another level.”

Paul Matthews
CEO, Monmouthshire County Council

The Camborne Link | A community directory to assist social prescribing.

“As a GP practice working in a disadvantaged area, we are interested in any ideas that can reduce unnecessary repeat visits from our patients. The Made Open platform can facilitate the types of community resilience and self-dependence that we require by enabling people to participate in a range of community groups, clubs, volunteering opportunities and so forth.”

Scott Bennett
Partner, Veor Surgery, Camborne
