We are normally activated by humanitarian organisations to support them in the response to a natural disaster or crisis situation.
If you want to activate the Standby Task Force request an activation now.
If you need the assistance of our volunteers but do not meet all of our activation criteria can request a side deployment.
If you want to try something brand new that may push forward the state of the art in humanitarian response you can also request a side deployment.
In a side deployment, we inform our network of your requirements and put any volunteers who step forward in touch with you. We may also be able to work with you to advise you on ways to coordinate and organise the work of online volunteers.
In the past our side deployments have included supporting affected communities with crisis mapping and working with local agencies on election monitoring.
Please contact the core team if you would like to discuss a side deployment.
