Rally Round helps carers seek and co-ordinate practical help from family and friends - fetching the shopping, cutting the grass, mending the dripping tap etc. It can also help reduce loneliness "Can someone please pop in Thurs after 2pm to see John, as he's been on his own for 2 days".
The 'state of play' for each person being helped is displayed on a simple dashboard, visible only to all people who have been invited into a personal support network. Dashboard displays jobs waiting for volunteers, your jobs not yet done, jobs other people re doing etc. The dashboard also displays any status updates people choose to add.
Everyone in a support network gets an email everyday reminding them of jobs they've agreed to do and about jobs that are still waiting for someone to volunteer for.
