As part of our pledge to help organisations fighting the coronavirus crisis, we are delighted to be supporting Do IT’s volunteering platform with our digital identity technology.

Do IT is the UK’s digital home for volunteering, matching people with good causes for 20 years. They are currently supporting the government’s drive for volunteers during the Covid-19 pandemic.

With Do IT, you can find volunteering opportunities near you, save the opportunities you’re interested in and track those you apply for. You can also select your preferences and be matched with suitable opportunities as they come in.

For individuals who want to join the volunteering effort, they can now join Do IT and verify their account using the free Yoti app. This strengthens Do IT’s vetting and safeguarding procedures, saving them valuable time and money by providing them with already-verified users through the Yoti network.

The free Yoti app empowers individuals with a reusable digital ID. All users have their biometrics matched to a government-approved ID document, verified by leading technology and our expert security team. Once verified, users have a secure way to prove their identity with Do IT and our other partner businesses and nonprofits using their phone. Over 1.4 million UK individuals and 6.5 million people globally have downloaded the Yoti app. 

This partnership is part of our pledge to offer our identity verification technology free to any public health organisation, emergency service and community initiative that are working to tackle the Covid-19 crisis. 

If you need help authenticating staff, suppliers or volunteers in a secure, private and scalable way, please get in touch and we will happily set you up as quickly as possible, totally free of charge.
