What is GatherHere?
GatherHere is the online space for the Social Service Tribe, the community of like-minded individuals in the sector who share a vision of empowering everyone to live with dignity. It is where sector professionals can come together to work, communicate, network and reach differently to do good for the sector.

Official Launch of GatherHere
GatherHere was officially launched on 21 March 2019 by Ms Anita Fam, President of the National Council of Social Service (NCSS) in the presence of key social service professionals, Communities of Practice (CoP) leaders, influencers and content providers.

LAUNCH HIGHLIGHTS

Speech by President of NCSS, Ms Anita Fam
 
In her speech, she called on the sector’s commitment and interest to join GatherHere.
 
To quote Ms. Fam, “GatherHere is a space for our Social Service Tribe, and it will be as vibrant as we want it to be. We therefore invite you to build this space with us, by contributing content that matters to you, and getting more of the Tribe on board and plugged into our sector."
 

 
 Case Sharing by 3 Group Owners
Group owners from Care Corner Youth Services, Lutheran Community Case Services Ltd (LCSS) and the Volunteer Resource Optimisation (VRO) team from NCSS were also invited to share their use of GatherHere at the launch.
 
The groups shared how GatherHere enabled them to connect, engage members and share resources and expertise within their respective organisations.
  
Learning Segment Takeaway
 
The learning segment was moderated by Mr. Sabarudin Hashim, Master Facilitator for the launch.
 
The two-part learning segment consisted of a forum discussion and break-out groups session, aimed at facilitating a conversation on how to effectively leverage digital technology, such as GatherHere, in the social service sector.
 
  
 

• Forum discussion: ‘In Conversation with...’
 
Esteemed panellists, Mr. Rahul Mudgal and Ms. Rasika Thapa, shared their thoughts on employing digital thinking as a means to solve problems and leverage technology in the non-profit sector.

• Break-out groups sessions
 
The question “How can you use GatherHere to do good through your organisation?” was posed to the groups for discussion. Participants were encouraged to brainstorm on how Social Service Agencies can leverage on GatherHere to support their vision and/or mission.
