Twine is a bundle of digital tools being offered by Power to Change. Twine allows you to log volunteer hours and visitor footfall quickly and digitally and then use this digital data to create efficient reports. It is designed overall to make reporting on volunteer and visitor stats faster and easier. It’s been designed with simplicity in mind and overall is very easy to use.
Power to Change, the independent charitable trust that supports and develops community businesses in England, is building a community of Twine users around the country. When people ask “Why should I use Twine?” the answer usually is that if you are currently logging volunteer hours on paper, or have a similar paper system for logging visitors/service users, Twine could save you the time and effort.
Volunteer Co-ordinators and Service Managers have a lot on their plate, Twine saves them the time spent typing up paper forms into excel. Twine is completely FREE courtesy of Power to Change. You can call or email their team 5 days a week for support. Training is conducted by web video chat and is free of charge, and can be repeated in the event of staff changes. The only cost associated with Twine is if you would like training to be conducted at your premises but due to the simplicity of the platform, this is uncommon.
