These are unprecedented times. Many people are feeling isolated and are struggling to find the support they need, whilst charities and organisations are short of vital volunteers.
At aDoddle.org, we were already developing area-based community maps, connected to aDoddle’s UK wide platform. Building a resource that helps both potential volunteers and those who need support to discover local organisations. We are now ‘fast-tracking’ the launch of these maps to help support people, organisations & communities in these testing times. The maps are still in their infancy – but will be here long after Covid19 has gone.
We now need YOUR HELP to raise awareness and encourage charities and organisations to create a free profile. Sharing: who they help, how they help, the difference they make, the help they need and how to contact them to either access to help, offer to volunteering or give a donation. These organisations will also need as much support in the coming months to get back up and running, and you can help by encouraging them to use aDoddle to share what support they need.

Community Maps - Making it as easy to find local charities & community organisations as it is to find a hotel or restaurant on Google Maps, all with a few clicks of a button, 24 hrs a day and free to use
In 2017 the first ROC Dawlish meeting took place. Over 140 local residents came together to talk about ways to strengthen and support our community.
A key issue that came up in conversation was the fact that many people still didn’t really know what was happening locally. This included where people could connect with others, where they could get help, or even give help through volunteering.
So ROC Dawlish has partnered with aDoddle.org, a Dawlish based UK wide initative, to map the amazing charities, community groups and opportunities that exist on our doorstep.
