Description

Everyone needs a hand sometimes.
And that’s what we’re trying to do here, make it easier for people to lend, or receive, a helping hand if they need it.

When using Community Assist you will be part of your own personal, local, and private, community. At the centre of which is the person who may need assistance. When that person needs help, they can easily signal their community to let them know. Requests are separated into non-urgent and urgent requests, and community members can set notification routines to suit their availability for either requirement.

Using Community Assist is a great way to enjoy personal growth, gain new perspectives and increase the bonds within your small community of trusted friends and neighbours, all just helping out where they can.

Who is this For?

Disabled people and their personal network may find this app useful. But it’s not just people with mobility issues that this app is for, this app is for anyone who needs a little support from the community and those who care about them.

How it works

Think about your community in three categories. You should recognise yourself in one of these roles:

* The person who may need assistance

* The community leader, this is probably a close friend/spouse/guardian/carer to the person in need of assistance

* A community member, lending a hand when you can

Once you’ve joined or set up your community, the person in need of assistance can simply buzz the entire community if they ever need a hand either using the app or using Siri Shortcuts.

If you’re willing to assist, let the community and person in need of assistance know, either from Community Assist’s rich notification or back in the app so everyone knows all is in hand.

Don’t forget to set up your availability so we don’t bother you with requests at the wrong time!

This app is safety first.

As an example the community leader needs to set up the community, then add the person in need of assistance to the community. Community leaders will need to verify any new members, (community leaders can choose to relax some of these rules if they think it’s appropriate). This is to enforce a buddy system and build in protections via oversight for the person who may need assistance. Community leaders can also view a log of previous requests.

This app is privacy first.

I don’t want your data, it sounds problematic, I’d have to store it and there are, like, laws about privacy. That sounds like a hassle getting in the way of providing a useful tool that will hopefully improve lives. So it’s important to let all Community Assist users know that all the data is securely held in iCloud. I have no idea about any of it and that’s the way I like it.

What’s New

Version 1.0.1

This version enables adaptive iPad layout - now you can use your Community Assist profile across multiple devices.

Also fixes a couple of bugs including that one which meant community members without a community couldn't join a community shared by a link. So that's nice. Any new ones crept in? Let us know please?

Greatapp that could really help communities in these difficult times.

Really like this app and if you have a community or family or friends or disabled people who you need to support but we are all in self isolation this app really helps to make it easy for us to help each other. I have set up a community with my friends and family. Feels really good to know if we need each other we can be there. Excellent GPS function on urgent notifications.
