My objective is to create a Social Support Platform to enable charitable support organisations to engage directly with their users both professionally but also facilitate peer to peer support in a secure, protected and private environment utilising the latest mobile and web technologies.

Charitable organisation's abilities to deliver these resources differ significantly. The impact of this is that people who are in need of support may simply not get it, some of whom could be in need of professional intervention. This can be caused simply by not having a manned telephone line out of office hours. Charitable Organisations due to their very nature are often tied to relying on outdated, cumbersome and convoluted solutions which in turn hinders their abilities to reach people in need of their support.

I started this project after losing one of my twin sons Thor, during his birth in tragic circumstances. This was a life changing event and something I will live with for the rest of my life. In seeking bereavement support for myself and my wife, I found that the support available to us was poor and difficult to access, especially support for bereaved fathers.  I strongly believe support for bereavement, mental health, cancer or whatever you need, either professional or peer to peer should be available wherever you are, and whenever you need it. In a mobile first society, a solution that would enable support organisations to utilise the latest mobile platforms and technology is very much needed and perhaps overdue.

Many charitable organisations simple don't have the financial resources, vision or technical expertise to implement a digital support offering. I want to change that and create a platform that can be made available to any organisation that wants it, without any financial or technical barriers. In doing so, letting them do what they do best and focus on offering the best services they possibly can to their beneficiaries. 

Overview of the Social Support Platform
The platform will be a white label solution to enable organisations to utilise the platform under their own branding. Hosted on Google Firebase to ensure fast, reliable and redundant services are inherent to the solution. Security and privacy are core to the platform to ensure end user confidence. 

Mobile / Web App - for users to find support and information.
Web App - for use by the organisation support staff to engage with the users.

Why Patreon?..
As a professional software developer, I have been working on the Social Support Platform in my spare time whenever possible and it's progressing and will be entering beta shortly but in order to do the project justice, I'm looking to be able to dedicate more time to the project and that's why I'm seeking patrons so that I can make the platform available as soon as possible. This project has the capacity to help many thousands of people.

If you would like to help in other ways, if you have skills or if you'd rather make a single donation then please get in touch.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
