Demographics, population growth and changes to government spending mean we need better ways of funding, designing and delivering services for local people.
Community based organisations can support and grow local communities: they know where the need is, are plugged into the networks and understand the local histories. All vital in terms of building healthy and happy communities.
At Firesouls we create digital tools to get new resources into local communities. Usability is central to everything we do, and so we work carefully with our private, public and third sector partners.
The Social Value Exchange is an online marketplace that matches government suppliers who create community benefits under the Social Value Act, with community based organisations who need resources to deliver their projects.
The Fundfindr is a tool that helps community based organisations find funding that best suits their requirements. We currently have a funding pot of around £450 million.
Firesouls Business is a search engine for councils to find local businesses to deliver low value contracts. Through this platform, business can ‘do well by doing good’ while at the same time councils can achieve more value for money in their contracts.
