The Tribe Project: Covid-19
The Tribe project is a collaboration between Broze Software Labs, Skills for Care, The TEC Services Association, Carers UK and others to stimulate local care economies.
About the project
It will address national care inequality at the local level. It includes a digital platform that can both map and predict care ‘dark patches’ where home care provision is either failing or doesn’t currently exist. It will also recruit and upskill people in areas of low economic activity and high public service demand so they can create micro businesses, structured as community enterprises, to provide care.
New models of care for independent living
Our proposal is centred on a digital approach to facilitate the scaling of ‘trusted’ community groups which are responding to COVID-19 community demand. Our focus will be to provide a solution to facilitate coordination, planning and action of broad spectrum community need between voluntary organisations and local government.
We will be repurposing a Smart Cities base technologies to geospatially orientate, categorise and ultimately predict the movement of community ‘need’ across society through use of machine learning. We will grow and position community resources directly proportional to projected emerging community demand.
