Can Do Bristol

Can Do Bristol is a solution for social action and is central to how the City Council plans to engage citizens and build stronger communities.

“52% of our citizens 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.”

Marvin Rees, Mayor of Bristol


Torbay Together

Our platform reconnects communities amongst the 50+ generation with the activities and members in their neighbourhood.

"Made Open have been a brilliant partner, working with us at every stage and even investing in our requirements. 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 - The UK's Healthcare Skill Exchange

Our platform supports the timebank for improving the quality of health and care services across the UK.

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

Parents 1st

Parents 1st are a charity delivering high quality peer support during pregnancy, birth & early months of parenthood. We’re delighted to be creating their community platform for volunteers, programme leaders, funders, parents & academics to share experiences and knowledge. Their 'open access' platform will increase reach and impact at a national and international scale.


Design Out Drowning with the RNLI

We were appointed by the RNLI to lead a community-led research project in the south west focused on designing out drowning.

“In working with Made Open, we have developed momentum with a fantastic network of talent that represents a great foundation for the next phase of the Design Out Drowning programme. Made Open were particularly brilliant at broadening our horizons in terms of potential partners, stakeholders and collaborators. We are now working with several organisations with whom we can help reduce the risk of drowning around our coasts in the South West.

Will Roberts, Innovation Manager, RNLI


CVT Connect

We helped Camphill Village Trust create a private social network for adults with learning disabilities.

“Co-producing CVT connect was just extraordinary. People had lots of ideas which they all wanted to see happen in the APP. I love what we have done."

Launceston Together

Following a two-year pilot, our platform is helping partners in the city of Launceston (Tasmania) to harness the power of the whole community.

"It has been a revelation to work with a design and technology partner who care as much about community development as we do."

The Cornwall Link

We have partnered with Age UK Cornwall & Isles of Scilly to create an online community directory and guided conversation tool. The Cornwall Link connects people with a range of community activities to reduce loneliness and social isolation.

"The Made Open team have always been attentive and listened to our ideas. They have helped us to find approaches that improve quality and efficiency of delivering the service. They have helped us to develop a website that connects people with local support and is highly regarded for look and content".

We helped Croydon Council to evaluate their social value practices. Our research explores what impacts they have made from 2012-2018.


The Falls Prevention Challenge

We helped Teignbridge District Council to trial new ways of making homes safer and reducing falls.

“Made Open helped us to understand the experiences of older people who had fallen. They prototyped a number of new service concepts and did a great job of engaging stakeholders and the wider community in the design process."
