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.”

Who are Nottingham Rainbow Project?

Nottingham Rainbow Project was founded in 2001 and they understand the importance of building relationships, especially somewhere that will be completely new to their members.

The importance of support for asylum seekers and refugees in the UK is something they care deeply about and it’s important for people that come to the country to feel welcomed and safe. The Nottingham Rainbow Project believe the best way of doing this is to involve them in activities and one-to-one sessions that help their members build a new life and get them back on their feet.

How we helped

Nottingham Rainbow Project have been using the Groop platform for one and a half years, and so far, have recorded more than 260 members, running in excess of 340 sessions with their 3 staff members and 27 volunteers. Using our platform and the software is really helping them to capture data on both sessions and members alike.

Adam Baker, Project Co-Ordinator at the Nottingham Rainbow Project states:

“When I started, we had no system in place that would store our details securely, we used paper for everything and had this locked up in a filing cabinet, 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. We use it to submit our reports for funding and the staff at Groop are happy to help with anything we get stuck with. We have started to look at tagging our sessions and members and now look to run reporting on attendees and measuring our client base and long-term social impact. We’ve began putting our volunteers on there too. It’s helping us with our annual report approaching that we can easily find out all this information. I would describe Groop as easy-to-use, functional and constantly developing.”
