Do-it Trust, the charity behind Do-it.org, has joined forces with Vivo Technology, the skills and character-building platform, in the creation of a new social tech enterprise that will enable Do-it.org and Vivo to increase their impact and secure a long term future for the national volunteering database.
The new social enterprise, called Vivo Life, will bring together all the digital services currently managed by both organisations.
There is no change to the existing service on Do-it.org, with all the current services and functionality continuing under the new management. As currently, the Do-it service will remain free to use for volunteers, volunteer centres and recruiters.
Vivo will also make Do-it.org volunteering opportunities available to its existing 1m student users via its platform that is available in over 350 secondary schools. The new platform will not require recruiters or volunteers to have to re-enter data and we will ensure that there is plenty of time to get to try it out and use it before we finally switch over.
The Do-it Trust charity will evolve over time into Vivo Life's charitable foundation, with activities likely to include becoming a grant maker to support initiatives to encourage social change and development through the use of technology.
