New service to help our communities
Published: Tuesday, 11th February 2020
A new community listings application with an integrated map facility which will help connect residents with a wide range of events, activities, community groups and venues has been launched.
The map is designed to give our residents a better understanding of the services available across the borough and help them to connect with these services. They can search for information by location, category, and keyword.
It has also been designed to help combat loneliness and bring together older people and their carers who may not be aware of services and events available in the area/borough.
Councillor Stuart Carroll, lead member for adult social care, children services, health and mental health, says: “I am delighted that officers have worked really hard to design a map which will help residents’ access services in their local community.
“There is a wide array of events, activities, community groups and venues which are available for residents to view and access via the map.
“It will be such a useful tool to help promote the wide range of activities on in the borough. We encourage local groups and organisations to add their events and activities and hope that our residents and local groups find this tool beneficial.
“Mental health and reducing isolation are key priorities of the council and this new tool is evidence of our commitment to bring people together and advance health and well-being”.
