Make Good Grow was started by Nigel Shanahan in November 2018 following the sale of his previous business. Wanting to give something back, he looked for stories of volunteering within the company and uncovered a treasure trove of effort going on largely unnoticed.
When others heard the stories of their colleagues’ achievements, they wanted to get involved themselves and the idea behind Make Good Grow was born.
That doing good, feels good; and by telling the stories you can grow the good.
The team has slowly been growing since then and we are now a team of 6. We have partnered with WCAVA, (Warwickshire Community and Voluntary Action) and are also working with organisations such as Warwick and Coventry Universities to revolutionise volunteering in Warwickshire. Our platform is currently in development with our Beta due to be launched early 2020.
Who are we for?
If you’re someone who wants to start volunteering or a good cause wanting to recruit volunteers then our platform is for you. Our aim is to create the easiest path into volunteering by offering individually tailored opportunities and focusing on event-based volunteering.
