  • Community Empowerment

    Get involved, vote, create awareness or volunteer to empower change.

  • Local Information

  • Personal Voice

    Upload your GRIPE for the community to vote and notify the local council at the same time.


GRIPE is a community focused tool which empowers citizens of a city to become more involved in their local neighbourhood and connect with local councils.

Residents can participate in the community by sharing their comments with other users, link to social media websites to raise awareness and access up-to-date feedback from the council as they respond to each issue. A top charts section allows users to see the most discussed and voted upon reports while a map section clearly visualises alerts within their current area.

Recognising the need for councils to gain insights and join conversations with the general public, representatives at the council can gain access to the GRIPE system, view detailed information and analysis of each case, while engaging with the public by providing up-to-date information.

We believe in the potential to create a service for local awareness, encourage innovation, highlight the need for community participation (volunteering) in local neighbourhoods and help councils to balance their current financial problems with city services.
