Recent events have shown there has never been a more crucial time for communities to join together. Many people are feeling isolated and are struggling to find the support they need, whilst charities and organisations are short of vital volunteers.
Community Maps are building a resource, that will be here long after Covid19 has gone, to help potential volunteers and those who are seeking support to discover local organisations.
We are asking every local Charity, Community Group or Organisation to create a free profile on the map – sharing the 5 key things people want to know – Who they help, how they help, the difference they make, the help they need and how to contact them.

This link takes you to aDoddle.org, our partner who hosts our community map for us, and once you have added your profile it will be visible on our community map and the UK wide aDoddle map, making it easier for people to find you – all of this is free.
