Report for Freegle Mentors June 2017

The Team

Mentors currently have 10 members and 1 Board observer.

The Mentor team are:

Alison, Christian, Cooky, David, Diz, Jacqui, Jo and Tom. Sheila Little is the team coordinator, Wanda is acting co-coordinator. Andy Ludlow is our Board observer.

Support offered

If you are thinking about going away please don’t leave your group un-moderated, we are happy to help with cover. Contact us on you can just remove us from the mods list on your return.

If you know of any group that is being left unmoderated for long periods, mentors can be contacted in strictest confidence. We would rather help out and get things back on track before a group ends up being abandoned.

Work this month

June was much quieter for Mentors. We made three more groups Native only this month. Two were caretaker groups, Plymouth and Washington and the third was Bolton group, who mentors have been helping with for some time

We are currently trying to contact two absent group owners. One is answering intermittently and we hope to get at least that group back up and running very soon..

No groups were handed over this month, but no groups were found new owners either because of holidays and helping cover for both Group Owners and mentors who have been away. We hope to get a start on finding new mods for some of the caretaker groups in the next couple of weeks.

Caretaker and Mentor/Temporary run Groups

There are currently 35 groups listed on the caretaker list needing new owners and 11 that are being cared for temporarily. These include some groups being cared for by non mentors. Since the list began, permanent new owners have been found for another 37 groups.

We come again to the list of groups under the care of caretakers. If any mod teams local to any of these groups would like to take any of these groups on as permanent new owners, please contact us.
