Building strong, safe and sustainable communities
Trusted by 1000’s of users, Groop is a Community Management System under a licensing model and we offer a full circle eco-system which covers all aspects of managing a hierarchical organisation across its structures, linking staff, volunteers and beneficiaries.
Groop provides risk management for volunteering, 24/7; taking care of the compliance, communications and data – enabling more time to make a difference.
Groop’s technology has been developed after our Founder, Sally Higham CEO, identified the extensive time spent organising and running a community activity. Recognising an opportunity to develop an easy to use administrative system, Groop was created to take the hassle out of running any community volunteer eco system, supporting a range of beneficiaries – improving their physical and mental wellbeing, raising aspirations and assisting their learning and skill development.
Our CEO brought together a team of experts across the Public, Charitable, Voluntary and Technology sectors to inform and build the Groop software.
We help you save time and make your lives easier, so you can focus on what’s important – making a difference to communities.
All documents and personal data is stored safely on UK sovereign based servers. We’re dedicated to spreading community spirit, not data.
GroopLive keeps you and your community connected with secure video conferencing. For more information, click here.
A quality assured resource base with up-to-date guidance, forms, templates and policies to help you achieve your governance and safeguarding standards.
People who love Groop
The Groop system has enabled us to successfully organise and coordinate our volunteers and Community Hub provision during most difficult and challenging times. We have found the system easy to use on both our mobile devices and within our office environment. The support from Groop has been fantastic throughout the process, they offered in depth training at the start of the process and have continued to offer support as we move forward with the system.”
Gemma Maret | Stevenage Helps
We use the Groop reporting tools to gather data and contribute to the Essex Education Scorecard, which shows the numbers of young people participating in positive activities, number of sessions delivered etc.
This is an important function for us, as we work closely with Children’s Social Care and the Police to ensure we understand the movements of vulnerable young people who are missing and maybe involved in sexual or criminal exploitation.”
Bridget Craigen | Essex County Council
It’s most impressive that the end result is what we wanted it to be. We now offer a system for our coordinators that ticks all the boxes!”
Rebecca Kennelly | Royal Voluntary Service
We have been incredibly impressed by the dedication and commitment of the team at Groop in making the system work for us. Always at hand to answer questions and find solutions, the team are competent, generous and personable; with these values clearly visible throughout all our interactions.”
Chloe Thomas | Jamie's Farm
We’ve been able to provide our board of trustees with a breakdown of service users by postcode, gender and age groups. We’re also using the software to capture our wider network of stakeholders: from funders, VIP’s, marketing contacts to local trades people that we use for premises maintenance.”
Annalisa Solla | GL11 Community Hub
Groop offers a one-stop shop for our members to access some of the fundamental tools they need to support the delivery of quality services in Manchester. Of particular value is the data management facility, which has encouraged 25 organisations to register for Groop within a week.”
Ross Grant | Manchester Partnership organisation
Groop has enabled us to have all our files in one place, password-protected and accessible from anywhere. We can track our attendances, our staff handovers are easier, and all our historic records are safely kept, this means we no longer need to dig through piles of paperwork to reference to, we can search for it and it’s there.”
Adam Baker | Nottingham Rainbow Project
The system is great and getting better, it’s fantastic that we’ve been able to work directly with Groop to develop and grow the platform. Everything’s in one place and it’s accessible wherever we are, we use it on our phones and iPads and login to computers at various venues.”
