In the face of reduced Local Authority support, communities are now having to take greater responsibility for their own resilience. Central to this is how community groups understand the risks to themselves and make sure there is adequate information available to connect with local services. This could take the form of understanding available services, physical resources and assets available to them and easy access to relevant points of contact. This also involves working effectively and in a structured manner with volunteer groups.
The configurable Community App available from SmartWorld Connect enables these community groups to easy establish a network that links the community to the necessary resources to enable greater transparency and knowledge sharing, leading to greater community resilience.
This should lead to more efficient provision of local authority services to meet the unmet needs of the local community.
