'aDoddle' - Putting People & Communities First

Community Mapping – working together with communities across the country to make it ‘aDoddle’ to find local charities, community groups and organisations.

aDoddle is the UK’s first network of connected community maps focused on supporting people and communities. With over 150,000 charities and even more local community groups and organisations, that provide vital support, opportunities to volunteer, places to connect or resources, there has never been a more critical time to bring this information together in one place

Listening to Your Feedback

aDoddle started because of a need for some of the most vulnerable within our communities to be able to find help and support easily – however the more our team spoke to people from all walks of life the more we realised that community mapping done it the right way could benefit everyone, help empower people and support the growth of more resilient communities.

Ability to Embed Maps

An ‘aDoddle’ map can be embeded in any website, geo-located to an area and even focussed on specific niches – making it an ideal ‘add-on’ for any organisation – Local – Regional – National.

Constantly Evolving

Community Mapping is a bit like the Christmas advert that the RSPCA uses where they say ‘A puppy is for life – not just for Christmas’. We believe that Community Mapping is not just for Covid-19, a storm, a flood, etc. It is for every day and every community.

Also there is the ability for us to give you editing control of the area-map website so that you can add more pages that are relevant to your community. This would have potential benefits in times of crisis, local events, updating communities, .... the list is endless.

Sponsoring a map is 'aDoddle' and there are a few options.
