We're updating our database systems

RedbridgeCVS is moving to a new admin system in the next few weeks.

Our new systems will be used to record all of our work - to keep track of things like:

  • Memberships
  • Mailing lists, including eNews
  • Training bookings
  • Volunteers and organisations that involve volunteers
  • Our Social Prescribing work
  • Our Fit for Fun community exercise project

New systems should reduce the amount of time we spend on admin. And they should help us get a better overview of the work we do - which groups we work with, where in the borough we work, and if there are any needs we should do more to meet.

We've done a lot of work already to select the right software - we've chosen Volunteer Plus and AideCRM - and now we face the detailed task of transferring lots of existing information from our existing database and various Excel spreadsheets. We're aiming to keep disruption to a minimum as we move from one system to another, but there may be the odd hiccup, so please bear with us and our staff at what may be a stressful time.

If you have any queries about the changes, contact Colin Wilson, our Information Officer, on 020 3874 4135 or at colin@redbridgecvs.net.
