A community partner is any organisation that focuses on improving a neighbourhood through safety, social or environmental efforts. These organisations can be a neighbourhood watch, community policing forum, ratepayers or civic association, a local feeding scheme, ward councillor, home owner’s association, etc.
All community partners get a special profile and dedicated section on OurHood. Here you can post into a “News Feed” section that will automatically notify people in your area via email, SMS, and push notification when a new post from your organisation is released. Educate residents on your organisation and garner support for local projects or events. Share important resources with other organisations in your area. Respond to queries or complaints from residents and encourage active citizenry. You can also store documents such as meeting minutes, public participations forms or your organisation’s constitution, which is easily available to all residents in your area.
OurHood is free for community partners and residents. There is no membership fee to be a part of OurHood. We aim to create safer, better and more connected neighbourhoods and believe that community partners are important role players in making this vision a reality.
To become a community partner on OurHood simply fill out a form which will be provided by one of us. We will contact your organisation, do a quick vetting process and build your community profile.
