DIGITAL MATCHING FOR LOCAL ORGANISATIONS
You run a church or other local community organisation with a range of elderly people shielding at home?
You are concerned about isolation as many of them possibly do not interact regularly with other members of your community ?
We can help by matching your flock amongst each other or with befriending volunteers in your organisation. Given the special circumstances of befriending services we would not match directly, but share suitable matchings with the program organiser (pastor, NGO or charity director, ...) to finally make the call whether to facilitate the matchmaking.
MISSING CONNECTIONS LIKE THOSE WITH YOUR FELLOW BUDDIES
You enjoyed church events like after service coffee, pastorate groups
You loved the conversations and connections with people both new and long acquainted
LUNCHROULETTE CONNECTS YOU WITH OTHER MEMBERS IN YOUR ORGANISATION
Don't surrender to fate and Corona who you meet. Lunchroulette can connect you to others in your church, charity or organisation with genuine connection potential.
What do you need to do ?
In 25 min you create your profile and the rest is magic. We match you based on an algorithm that incorporates the latest insights of friendship research.
FIND LIKE-MINDED PEOPLE
Even if a second and third wave comes, we can help you find a few like minded people to become friends and meet online or in small home circles (support bubbles).
STEP BY STEP
On profile.practicalfriendship.com (hosted by Limesurvey) you answer an in-depth questionnaire regarding what you primarily value about your friends and what your friends primarily value about you. The second section then looks at your hobbies and interests. This step takes 20-25 minutes, and only needs to be done once resulting you receiving a Chiffre code for your profile.
On registration.practicalfriendship.com you then register your chiffre with the groups or circles in which you wish to be matched with other people. This can be the local church, a care home befriending organisation or a regular games meetup at the community centre.
Once 5 people have registered within a circle we will run the matching, and if suitable matchings occur, notify registered people or the circle organizer to facilitate contact making.
Please note that it takes about 25 minutes to complete this questionnaire on a PC, Laptop, Tablet or Phablet. It is a little bit more difficult on a small screen Smartphone.
It is best done having sat down with a coffee or nice glass of wine.
(The questionnaire is hosted on Limesurvey, a GDPR compliant open source based survey provider hosted in Germany)
