Pretty Simple: web, digital, social



Thank goodness for Lend a Hand!I’m thrilled to report that the idea which we submitted to Social Innovation Camp has been chosen to be developed further.

The SI Camp judges met last Friday and sifted through no less than 97 entries before deciding on 6 ideas to be developed over the weekend of 17th-19th June in Edinburgh.

Followers of this blog will already have read about my colleague’s idea for Lend-a-hand, a messaging tool for carers to ask family, friends and neighbours at the same time for help with quick-and-easy every-day tasks where a little bit of brief help goes a long way, leaving the carer to worry about more important things.

I look forward to seeing this idea brought to life during what will no doubt be an intense but exciting weekend. If you’re interested in taking part in the weekend, and have skills to offer, find out how you can get involved.
