We reserve the right to reject applications or remove Projects which do not meet these acceptance criteria.

The role of Made Open

Made Open is a social network where people, communities and organisations can unite, online. The platform invites users to share ideas, make connections, raise money, access volunteers and form Project teams. Registered users can take joint responsibility for resolving problems and lean into each other for support.

We will occasionally provide tips and other guidance to help users deliver successful Projects. From time to time we may choose to promote and advertise certain Projects. We will not be directly involved in the management of Projects listed on the website.
