We are tackling challenges created by an ageing population and dated care models, while creating new opportunities for all. Tribe rethinks micro-commissioning, social prescribing and social action to improve quality of life for older people and generate thousands of new paid and voluntary opportunities.
How Does It Work?
On any given day there is a 90,000 short-fall in care workers nationally, with the highest impact felt in disparately populated areas. Brexit has increased churn in the care industry to 33% (7% carers sourced from EU), accelerating the industry care provision crisis. Current Adult Social Care provision in this climate is clearly no longer sustainable. Our increasingly ageing population are already facing the consequences of an outdated health & social care model.
Social care can only be successful when it attracts and retains compassionate, skilled staff, but current industry models are unable to build in the time or consistency for dignity, warmth and companionship. More and more older people are funding their own care, but often cannot find a model which suits them.
Our initiative will create new quality jobs and grow out economies, especially in rural areas, whilst tangibly reducing pressure on health and social care systems. Ultimately we will improve the quality of life for ageing populations and economically disadvantaged communities.
At the heart of Tribe is a technology which enables Local Government, NHS and Voluntary community sector ‘need’ data to be geospatially mapped across communities down to neighbourhood level detail. Our focus of localising community need in this way enables grassroots organisations to map community assets and up-skill individuals on-demand. Working in this way will enables local authorities to take action and meet need as it emerges using resources from within the community itself.
Working collaboratively with the Council, community capacity initiatives can be run through Tribe to create hundreds of DBS checked volunteers, exponentially growing out social action. Community volunteers are identified, then invited to train and receive supported in becoming community entrepreneurs able to paid deliver services and support. This paid support is micro commissionable by individuals receiving care or local authorities, all facilitated and auditable by the Tribe technology.
