Goodbye Namola Watch, hello Namola Communities

Namola has launched an incredibly exciting feature called Namola Communities, which allows for people to manage the safety of their community in one app - the Namola app. 


To make way for this social safety platform, that puts the power of safety into the community, Namola Watch will be coming to an end on the 1st of April 2021


We encourage all previous Namola Watch Responders to therefore take this opportunity to create a community group and invite their community members to take part in the action by posting safety concerns, or reporting real emergencies. With members of the community using this platform, your safety catch net widens and as a responder can ensure that you are able to provide assistance where necessary, whether it be preventing incidents from escalating or being the first person on scene when emergencies take place. It’s once central place for concerned community members and selfless responders to engage, safely. 


Starting a community is easy. 


The first thing to be done of course, is to create your Community. Have a read of this article on everything you need to know about starting a community.
