Why am I introducing Ododow?
With Winter and the Festive Season fast approaching, a timely reminder that this time of the year sees a dramatic increase in people in distress and in need of help.
With some 200,000+ charities and community organisations across the country, there is definitely help available, but how easy is it to find it?
Statistics show thousands of cases where people have ‘fallen through the cracks’ unable to find the help they need when they need it most, with catastrophic outcomes from homelessness, to drug and alcohol addiction, mental health issues, crime and suicide.
Our good friend Jaki Bent, from If Everyone Cares CIC, is developing Ododow, an Interactive Community Map to pin-point charities, community groups and non-profits so that anyone who needs help in their area will be able to find it easily and completely free of charge.
