CrowdPatch helps you connect and share with the people in your life.

connect with people who share my interests

"No man is an island," so surround yourself with people who share your interests.

CrowdPatch’s purpose is to connect people with shared interests by forming patches. A patch can be within your local area or cover the things you’re interested in i.e beer, books, cycling etc.

Here's an example to get you inspired:

If you were to join the Birmingham patch, you can communicate with others in the Birmingham area and explore local projects. If you felt passionate about a local project, you could donate and then share it for the other patch members to see. They may ‘like’ or ‘comment’ on your post to spark a conversation. You can also use the patch blog function to publish your own thoughts and ideas about Birmingham.

If you were to join the Writers and Bloggers patch, you can use CrowdPatch to communicate with patch members, post thought-provoking articles about writing and blogging and comment on other members’ posts. If you are a budding writer, you can also share your own writing and see what the rest of your crowd think! Finally, you can explore projects that come under this patch and help others fund their project. 

Can’t find a patch that interests you?

Apply to make your own and become a Patch Leader.
