What is tempocommunities.com?

At Tempo we have been inspired by communities coming together at this time to help one another. Our new platform, tempocommunities.com is a place to share ways in which you can help others in your local community if you are able, and ways to stay connected with your community virtually from home. Whether you’re looking for ways to volunteer, or for some resources to boost your wellbeing at home, or if you are a group with an opportunity to advertise, please read our guidance below.
