What is a Support Area?
To enable individual members of Yes Groups to communicate and support one another across their local groups, eight organisational Support Areas were formed to geographically cover the whole of Scotland.
When a person joins a local group on the IndyApp, they also automatically join that local group's Support Area.
This allows IndyApp members to communicate with each other locally within their own group, regionally within their own group's Support Area and collectively as a National Yes Registry of local Yes groups across the whole country.
As with every communication feature on the platform, each member is in direct control of the groups they are a member of, the individuals they private message with and the resources they choose to share.
For more info on Support Areas and how they were formed...
VIA SUPPORT AREA MAP
To register your group for the IndyApp Yes Directory, select the coloured Support Area your group falls within and click on it's envelope icon.
Read, fill out and send us your request form. A volunteer from that Support Area team will be in touch as soon as they can.
What is the IndyApp?
The IndyApp Platform IS...
A secure place where supporters can find and join their local grassroots Yes movement, find each other within that movement, organise themselves and their resources into autonomous networks and collectively campaign for Scottish Independence.
What the IndyApp is NOT...
It is NOT social media – it's not trying to replicate or replace, twitter, facebook, WhatsApp or any other social media platform.
It's NOT an open publishing platform – where individuals share their ‘opinions’ with the world to collect ‘followers’ and ‘likes’ to trend, comment or troll.
It's NOT anonymous – every individual member of a group registered on IndyApp is a real verifiable person, known by their fellow group members and local activists.
It's NOT ‘top down’ broadcasting to the Yes Groups – IndyApp is a communications platform for and between Yes Groups and Yes activists.
IndyApp is NOT a ‘Leadership Organisation'
It IS a place where grassroots projects can seek support from activists of the Yes movement, within their Yes Groups. Locally, regionally and nationally.
Where has the IndyApp come from, and what is the NYR...
Yes Group networking
and the IndyApp toolkit
So, what are the organisational and communication functions’ provided by IndyApp, and how do they fit into the campaigning work of a grassroots Yes group?
After many meetings with local Yes groups in their own communities, we asked,
‘What is the very minimum needed to create and run a successful grassroots community campaign?’
Surprisingly this only requires three things, assuming you already have a good idea - and even if you don’t, IndyApp lets you borrow one from a fellow Yesser…
A Yes Directory for ALL
and the IndyApp toolkit
Yes Directory Is the public facing side of the grassroots IndyApp and is open to all.
The Yes Directory is here to make Scotland’s non party-political grassroots Yes movement: visible, searchable, contactable and joinable to all those that want to work together to win Scotland, and all the people of Scotland their Independence.
The Directory is made up of four grassroots listings. Each listing directly made and controlled by the groups themselves. IndyApp then automatically collates these into open national listings.
Calling all yes group organisers
If you like the sound of the 'Yes Directory' and want to see it on every Yes supporter's phone in Scotland, then populating the new ‘Yes Directory’ is the first essential next step.
To achieve this we are asking all Yes Group organisers to download the latest IndyApp, search for their own group in the Yes Directory and contact us through their group Front Door. If you cannot find your group on IndyApp then please contact us via our Group Sign-up page. This will really help speed up our own ongoing group contact process.
'Yes Directory' volunteers are already reaching out to all registered groups to make sure they know the new ‘Yes Directory’ exists, have their own group listing info up to date on it and are fully contactable by IndyApp private message before we go live to the public.
Once all registered Yes Groups are ready and easily contactable, we will hold country wide advertising campaigns to publicise the new grassroots networking capabilities provided by you and the new IndyApp ‘Yes Directory’.
A short two and a half minute film introducing the IndyApp 'Yes Directory' concept and quickly explaining it's importance as a campaign tool to the grassroots Yes Movement.
Have a watch and a read... if you agree and want your Group to be part of the 'Yes Directory' then download the latest IndyApp, search for your group and contact us through its Front Door.
If you cannot find your group on IndyApp then please contact us via our Group Sign-Up page and submit your form. Volunteers are waiting and will get back to you as soon as they can.
