Add My Support runs supportive social networks that connect people needing support to others who are able to provide it.
We create networks whenever and wherever there is a need.
The support networks, groups, campaigns and projects we run are used for education, mentoring, teaching, fundraising, health, business, sport, personal goals and other community uses.
Each network combines the best elements of both peer and professional support.
A user-led approach allows users to request the support and assistance that’s right for them, as well as access the latest offers and deals from our networks and expert partners.
Requests – Create requests, share them online, and receive proposals from friends and experts.
Offers – Receive unique offers, opportunities and support from others.
Connections – Get connected to people, experts, mentors and organisations based on your interests, experiences, needs and goals.
Deals – Find exclusive deals and special offers
Resources – View useful resources and articles recommended by others.
Campaigns – Support people, campaigns, issues and projects… or start your own.
Why was Add My Support set up?
“There are a lot of people out there with goals and aspirations to achieve things whilst coping with their day-to-day responsibilites, challenges and problems.
Looking at the needs of different individuals and groups I was struck by the inequality of current support and opportunities available. Most the time it comes down to a direct affect of social, economic and personal factors that are out of the individuals control. This seemed especially true for young people coming from tough and disadvantaged backgrounds.
By putting individuals in control and making it simple and acceptable for them to ask for support it seemed possible to use the internet to make a real difference to people’s lives.
Too often it is about who you know not what you know.
Add My Support’s networks use the internet to overcome the physical, social and geographical barriers to accessibility of real life help and support.
We put people in touch with others who can help, support and mentor them and we create new connections between people who share common goals, interest or needs.
The fact is everyday there are people in need of some form of help or assistance, and there is usually someone out there who is able to help. We try and help these people to find each other and give them a safe way to work together and communicate.”
