Volunteering through your mobile

posted 13 Sep 2011, 01:33 by Bexley Mencap
Mencap has launched its first volunteering action on Do Some Good - a mobile phone app hosted by Orange.  The app, which can be downloaded for free on iPhones, Blackberry phones, Android phones and Nokia phones, offers micro-volunteering opportunities that can be completed in a few minutes.

The first Mencap action went live in August.  People can tag places or services in their communities and rate them so that other people can see how accessible they are. The information will be used to build a map of services on the Mencap website.

More actions will be added soon. The information that people submit will be used to help shape Mencap’s campaigns, raise awareness of learning disability issues and show where Mencap needs to provide certain services.
