Putting People and Communities First

Whether you are in Lands End or John O’Groats, a rural village or a bustling city there may be a time when you are either looking for support, for somewhere to volunteer or a place to connect with others.

Connected community maps are working to make it ‘aDoddle’ for you to do that.

These maps are a growing resource, which was already being developed. The goal had been to have one connected area map in each region by the end of 2020. Due to the current situation the team has decided to ‘fast-track’ the launches and They will be here after Covid-19. All information is added directly by charities, community groups and organisations and themselves & with our unique ‘Traffic Light’ system you can easily see how ‘fresh’ it is.
