Event description

Description

This is a community of people with digital skills who share our mission to End Homelessness in Manchester.

As Street Support Network, part of Manchester Homelessness Partnership and the GM Homelessness Action Network, we have a backlog of tasks requested by people experiencing homelessness and frontline workers. We need help from the Manchester Digital community to work together and develop these features to support them.

This event is the 4th in a series of monthly events held at Code Computerlove. We welcome DotNet, front end and ionic app developers, UX/UI designers, content writers, testers, BAs, project managers, and anyone with time and passion that wants to work with us to deliver these benefits and make a real difference.

(If you aren't sure if your skills are useful, the answer is likely to be 'yes!', but if you want to check please email info@streetsupport.net.)

How these events run is something we are co-creating and improving together, but the schedule goes like this...

  • 5.30pm: The space is open to meet the team, get set up, work on features or ask questions.
  • 6pm: We do a welcome, project update, introduce the tasks, and organise into subgroups to work on tasks.
  • 9pm: We regroup to review the evening, gather feedback, and discuss what to change/improve next time.

Code kindly provide pizza and drinks, and we invite you to bring snacks to share with the group. If anyone needs their travel expenses to be paid to enable them to come, please just let us know.

If you are wondering what a 'raising bee' is, well we are co-creating it together. In the spirit of Manchester worker bees, we come together to work on tasks we know are needed, to help make our city a nicer place to be for ALL of its citizens. We welcome anyone who shares this mission to come along and get involved. If you would like to contribute in other ways outside these events, please get in touch. #EndHomelessnessMCR #StrongerTogether
