About this talk

We live in a digital world where we can find everything we need at the touch of a button - or Do we? The past 15 months have shown us how critical it is for people to be able to find help, where they can volunteer or how to connect with others in their community.

The news highlights things like; a potential Mental Health pandemic, the huge rise in unemployment and the effects of isolation to people and communities, to name a just few.

Across the UK there are over 150k charities and even more community groups & projects that provide critical support & opportunities to connect with others. Yet, believe it or not, too often it’s easier to find a restaurant on Google Maps, as there is no central hub that brings this information together. Meaning that information is dis-jointed, incomplete and often out date.

Join Jaki, founder of aDoddle.org, to discover how you can get involved, help to ‘join the dots’ & be part of the UK’s first network of connected area-based community maps. Together we are building a resource for use at a national, regional and local level. The maps have the ability to be ‘dropped’ into any website for niche based, community specific, or internal role support and so much more.

Community Mapping is about connecting people & communities with the support, opportunities & awareness of resources available to them within their local area.
