Shared Spaces: How to use all sorts of technology to help get things done in your neighbourhood
Over the last three years, people in lots of local neighbourhoods have been experimenting with how best to use web sites, text messages and other useful tools such as timebanking to help them get things done. Together, we’ve created some new spaces (both online and offline) where everyone can share what they know.
We’ve also worked out an approach that’s helped people from lots of different organisations – including community forums, food growers, social enterprises, tenant groups, council officers, neighbourhood police and organisations who support vulnerable adults – to get things done.
In the Shared Spaces booklet, you can find out more about this approach and some of the tools that are available to help you in your neighbourhood. The booklet is useful for community and voluntary groups, community activists, ward councillors, council officers and other public service officers who are working in neighbourhoods or with the voluntary sector.
Please share it with anyone who might be interested, and please get in touch if you’d like some printed copies.
