Helpdrome is intended for organizations like cities, emergency services, neighborhood watches, humanitarian organizations, companies that help people or take care of their employees, outdoor sports and mountaineering clubs and others.

From a city perspective, the goal of the platform is to create a city safety net and connect all parts of local communities. You can create an unlimited number of sub-organizations and levels. All desired organizations and emergency services can be included in the structure of the city safety net.

Benefits

  • Creation of the City safety-net
  • For citizens and tourists – Faster help and an extra layer of security in emergency and non-emergency situations
  • Prevention of violence, better connectivity and cooperation with citizens
  • Connecting communities – reconnecting people and organizations, a sense of communion
  • Practical tool for educating on human values in practice (helping others, compassion, kindness, selflessness …)
  • City branding and promotion „The city of Heroes!”

Helpdrome is the ideal solution for organizations like Neighbourhood Watch. It connects the whole community, especially the most vulnerable groups (children, the elderly, the disabled, the deaf and dumb …). For example, a Neighbourhood Watch organization can have its own safety net where citizens and their members can report irregularities and suspicious behavior that contribute to the prevention of unwanted outcomes. Also in emergencies, the whole community is connected and ready to react. Organizations can use the Helpdrome to fund their activities through online membership fees as well as to recruit new members and expand their activities.

In addition to having a closed system of their helpers and beneficiaries, humanitarian organizations can take the opportunity to make their helpers available for help to people outside their safety net (in the Heroes Nearby Global network). In this way, they can reach a larger part of society and be of help to the whole community, and at the same time enjoy the benefits of a closed system.

Mountaineering and hiking clubs, cycling clubs and anyone who conducts outdoor activities can benefit greatly from the Helpdrome platform and provide additional security and service not only to their members, but also to other hikers, nature and outdoor lovers.

E.g. a distressed mountaineer could send out a call that would, in addition to his friends and family, alarm the emergency services, mountain rescue services, members of the local mountaineering society, and also other hikers nearby.

Companies that have field workers or drivers as well as all those whose employees do part of the work outside can create a safety net for their employees.

Also, Helpdrome can be used for certain types of monitoring and reporting of the situation in the field or reporting of completed work or task.

In addition, the company’s employees could be members of the global Heroes Nearby network and provide help to the community, and at the same time use Heroes Nearby for their and their family’s personal safety.

Associations, groups of people or teams regardless of their size can use the Helpdrome to create their own safety net and enjoy all the benefits of the platform. We have a free option for small teams. For all others, a small fee is paid according to the number of users. We don’t mind if you charge your members for certain assistance services in a closed group over which you have complete control.

Also, your Heroes (helpers) can be part of the Heroes Nearby Global network and help fellow citizens in need. It is good to do good.

General features

The web application supports the creation of sub-organizations and enables the organization, verification and tracking of users and members who help others (Heroes).

It is possible to create an organizational structure assembled by sub-organizations. The main organization can monitor all sub-organizations Heroes/members and alerts whilst a sub-organization can see only its own activities. For example, the City can have a roof organization account and neighborhood watches can be sub-organizations. In the other example, the neighborhood watch can act as a roof organization having its sub-organizations based on specific city parts or areas.

For example, helpers we call Heroes by default, but you can choose any name you want as well as the name for the help-seekers group role.
