Build Status Maintainability Test Coverage


LocalSupport is the software that runs the Harrow Community Network, which was originally conceived as a directory of local support services, e.g. a list charities and non-profits in a particular area. It's since pivoted to focus on volunteer opportunities in a local area, but the list of organisations remains accessible.
