Support small local businesses in your own area! The lowdown on GiveLocally, the non-profit online platform that lets you support businesses where you live, work, and play.

We recently wrote about Streetify, an app that allows you to create a high street on your phone with all of your favourite shops, including local shops to help you support them during the pandemic. However, during a time like this, we need as many ways as possible of helping to keep these businesses going. The more, the better. Luckily, we have some founders here and there who are in a position to quickly and efficiently set up such ways.

GiveLocally picCreated by the founders of remote workers’ resource WorkClub, GiveLocally is a non-profit platform specifically for giving support to local businesses, be they shops, restaurants, cafés, or pubs.

Through the platform, you can buy gift cards and take advantage of special offers, giving those businesses a cash injection while their doors are closed, and have that romantic dinner, pub lunch, or tripple-whipple vanilla-twist double-shot latte with crème brûlée overtones waiting for the end of lockdown.

The process is as simple as looking up your city and searching for local businesses that you can support, and buying gift cards or vouchers from those businesses’ sites. Both owners and patrons can add businesses to the site to ensure that as many local businesses as possible are aided, and it is of course free to have a business listed.

However they can support cities all over the UK, and as awareness of the platform grows, so too will the number of deals they can list around the country.
