JENEEVA is a free web-based listing service that has 3 primary aims, all equally important, that together creates a unique engagement platform that will have relevance to most of us.
The first aim is to promote the support for local businesses showcasing their unique and free digital snapshot of what they do, how to contact them and where to find them. This improved visabiity lends itself to business owners engaging with existing/new customers to developing their customer base. There is also a launch-pad section for start-ups to give some of the most vulnerable business entities a chance to be noticed and hopefully become established within the local business community.
The second aim is to offer a similar service to community groups/projects/local charities, educational organisations. Building resilient communities includes the provision of a range of services for individuals in need. Community groups can support individuals facing financial difficulties, or those might be socially isolated. There are individuals that would like to support local community groups, but relatively few of us know of the existence or how they support people. The JENEEVA platform allows community groups/projects to showcase their unique contribution to our community and in so doing attract increased awareness and hopefully support/donations from the community they support.
Building resilient communities can also include supporting the development of a workforce with a range of essential knowledge, qualifications, skills and experience to increase their employment prospects. It is also envisaged that educational organisations can use the JENEEVA platform to showcase examples of alliances with local enterprise and/or community groups to develop new and innovative goods and services or public health initiatives.
Building resilient communities also includes developing the infrastructure to promote and deliver services aimed at promoting/sustaining the health and wellbeing of it’s population. The Health & Wellbeing section is designed to for this purpose and is open to organisations that deliver health & wellbeing services that are free at the point of use such as NHS services, G.P. services, public health departments and charities.
The third aim is to encourage individuals/small residents groups to share the issues facing their community, issues that are of concern to them or those that represent a significant improvement to them. There is a section within the community groups/projects dedicated to individuals/small residents groups to post ads of upcoming meetings or events.
The end result is an engagement platform for us all.
