1. The purpose of Nyby
Nyby is a digital service that connects resources with needs in our society. Nyby makes it easy to ask for help, and easy to contribute. For everyone. Nyby connects people.
Nyby is an app, but we like to think of it as a new way of organising the welfare society.
Resources in Nyby can be anything from volunteers, neighbours, relatives, unemployed at the Unemployment Office, employees in the municipality or employees in private, non-profit organisations. Needs can be all types of services ranging from the need of a hiking friend, help with homework, companion to the doctor, visiting friend, practical services, education, home services or private and municipal home services. The common goal is that together we will create a more inclusive and robust welfare society, which is tailored to the future.
The service is available to all public, non-profit, voluntary and private organisations that contribute to a warmer society through connecting people. All individuals in Nyby are affiliated and qualified by at least one of the organisations that use Nyby.
Nyby: Nyby AS is a Norwegian limited liability company, and whose main purpose is to contribute to a warmer, more inclusive and robust welfare society tailored for the future. We are a social technology company. Feel free to read more at www.nyby.com
