FRONTLINE LIVE IS ON A MISSION TO KEEP FRONTLINE WORKERS SAFE IN TIMES OF CRISIS. JOIN US.
Frontline Live is a charity born during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. Healthcare workers on the frontline didn’t have enough PPE. They were putting their lives at risk. Myriad non-traditional suppliers rose up to respond to that need: pivoting manufacturing, making protective equipment, raising money and collecting donated equipment.
So 40 volunteers came together to build a decentralised platform that made it easy for those who had to respond quickly to those in need…
... and to bring the full extent of the problem into full view, real time.
We will improve our free, decentralised, scalable platform to empower citizen activists, makers and conscious brands to respond quickly to the unexpected supply shortages that appear during any crisis anywhere…
… so no-one falls through the cracks again.
Building on our achievements during COVID 19, collaborating with volunteers, the open source community and a growing network of partners, we will make this platform more efficient, more robust and easier to replicate…
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
Centralised systems and traditional procurement frameworks are not agile enough to respond quickly in times of crisis. Makers, innovators and community activists need to be empowered to act at speed when need arises.
Real time insights from the frontline are too often silenced as bad PR.
We believe real-time, open data from the frontline is crucial; to ensure systems are robust and, more importantly, so frontline workers and citizens stay safe.
