Tribe is backed by data, bleeding-edge technology and robust AI. Make intelligent decisions in your local authority to better shape your communities.
Creating training and accreditation routes for people wanting to upskill to offer care or support as a Community Micro Enterprises, supporting volunteering, mapping and connecting local activities and groups, and smart technology.
Connecting people, place and things to use our resources most effectively and sustainably, by reducing administrative and transaction costs, increasing productivity and value, contributing to local economic development and through data analytics to help map and target preventive support where it is needed most.
Connecting people with cause to draw on support to options and opportunities closely based on their needs and preferences, and securing a better deal for those who want to offer paid care or support, both financially and in terms of work-life balance.
Employing cutting-edge smart technology in innovative new ways, Tribe is working with our partners to help to grow and diversify local care and support options and to help make the most efficient, effective and sustainable use of all available resources to improve individual and population health and wellbeing.
Tribe helps you to identify and plug gaps in care and support by growing, diversifying and connecting the full range of formal and informal care, support and smart technology available locally to meet people’s needs and aspirations.
Tribe is helping to grow and sustain new sources of paid care, supporting community micro-enterprises to set up, access training and accreditation, manage their business affairs and find customers, meeting demand for care while creating better paid new local jobs.
Tribe is working with local voluntary and community sector partners, using digital technology to help to grow, oversee and deploy volunteers where they are most needed, and to map and connect people with local activities, groups and relationships.
Tribe is innovatively combining home-based technology with artificial intelligence to help local authorities and other public bodies to support more people to live safely in the place they call home.
Tribe is helping to reduce the transaction costs associated with home-based care. An independent research paper identified the potential for Tribe to bring 33 per cent savings to the average hourly rate of home care, while simultaneously increasing the earnings of those offering care by up to 36 per cent.
Tribe will provide people with a structured way to explore their needs and goals, to find out about different ways to meet and pursue them, and to connect with, access or purchase products, services, support and opportunities.
We work collaboratively with local authorities, to build a platform that benefits everybody. Take a look at just some of our case studies.
Coordinating a large and successful volunteer effort that would ensure the wellbeing of its most vulnerable residents across the county.
Identifying areas of need across the county and direct available resources accurately and efficiently.
There is currently a national shortage of 105,000 care providers. To upskill a care provider, care companies incur a £3,500 training charge. Accelerated by Brexit and the Covid-19 pandemic, industry churn has now been increased to 33% which has made it impossible to train new care providers fast enough.
Training charges incurred by care companies are being passed on to local government with administration charges as high as 30% - This is a particularly big problem in rural areas and clearly the model is no longer sustainable. Preventative service withdrawal is also accelerating the industry crisis.
Ultimately thousands of vulnerable and socially isolated people are going without help.
Council leaders are telling us ‘Micro Commissioning’ via Tribe is a tangible solution to their ‘collapsing’ adult social care provision. The business case produced by our pilot local authorities procurement is compelling. Although it highlights a £800k fiscal saving through administrative cost reduction, based on a projected 400 new care providers, the largest risk identified was continuing with the current model - It has been proven internally current methods of care provision are not sustainable.
Areas with no care provision are growing across the UK, loneliness and social isolation are now seen as chronic in rural areas. Skills for Care and Community Catalysts are partners of the Tribe project helping provide access to the support and learning that local people need to establish a sustainable, legal and high quality care service.
British Red Cross and senior civil servants have all backed our project for its impact to support socially isolated individuals using resources from their own community. Six additional local authorities and two CCG’s have contacted us directly to discuss deployment of Tribe within their region.
