Platform overview

When your organisation wants to build an online community that is a force for good, our platform can help you make it happen.

Introducing our platform

Welcome to the community platform that mobilises the skills, strength, experiences, resources and potential of everyone in the community.

"The Made Open platform stimulates positive social action in communities. It's not easy to find a partner with the same values and approach to partnership. I cannot recommend their system and organisation enough."

Simon Sherbersky, Lead Officer, Torbay Community Development Trust


Community directory

Give communities the upper hand by letting members find out what's available in their community, post and promote their own activities and clubs, and be matched to opportunities.

“As a GP practice in a disadvantaged area, we are interested in any ideas that can reduce unnecessary repeat visits from our patients. The Made Open platform facilitates 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


Timebank & skill exchange

Build up your own virtual currency by enabling members of your professional or place-based community to exchange their skills for time credits.

“I am passionate about supporting people in the Health and Care system to improve services. This platform allows us 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


Project teams

Let collaborators from across your community be part of a (private or public) team space for planning and delivering community-led projects.

“We're proud to be involved with Made Open. Their platform is providing us with an innovative and collaborative means to harness the power of community - be it citizens, community groups, businesses, organisations and/or government - in dealing with challenges and opportunities.”

Owen Tilbury, Director, BOFA Ltd, Tasmania


Volunteering bank

Connect members looking to volunteer with members needing to post, promote and manage their volunteering opportunities on a localised platform.

“52% of our citizens already help out in their community at least three 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.”

Marvin Rees, Mayor of Bristol



Allow all members of the community to have their say, post their challenges, share their ideas, canvass opinions and turn the very best ideas into actual projects.

"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



Connect activities and members around a common goal that is important to the whole community, allowing members to pitch their campaign ideas or sponsor them.
