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.
