Digital Leaders Week June 2021: Community Mapping - Supporting More Empowered and Resilient Communities

Join our Founder and CEO, Jaki King, for her talk during Digital Leaders Week 2021

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.

Digital Leaders - 2020

Community Mapping – what is it, why does it work and how can we bring it to our communities right now?

We live in a digital world where we can find everything we need at the touch of a button – or Do we? Recent and ongoing events 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.

Join Jaki, founder of aDoddle.org, to discover how you can get involved and help to ‘join the dots’ & create a national resource which will connect people & communities with the support, opportunities & awareness of resources available at a local level.

Connecting Communities – One Click at a Time

Bournemouth University Students Launch Our 4th Area Based Community Map

On 26th March 2020 students from Bournemouth University held the online launch of the Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Community Map.

The students produced the launch as part of their university coursework.

The BCP community map was the 4th area-based map to be launched and is part of a planned network of over 400 area maps that are linked to aDoddle.org.

Connected Community Maps are about building a resource that works for the benefit everyone. Bringing together information on local charities, community projects, groups and resources. Making it ‘aDoddle’ for everyone to find community based support, services, tools and resources that may help improve quality of life. Whether that is finding help at a time of crisis (or in time to avoid a crisis), give help through volunteering or locating places to connect with others.
