Dutton Gregory Supports New Community Initiative

In light of recent events, there has never been a more crucial time for communities to join together and offer help and support to those affected.

As such, law firm Dutton Gregory are thrilled to announce their partnership with award-winning digital enterprise aDoddle – a unique national community resource developed to for use both UK-wide and at local level.

The concept has been named on the 2016 UK’s Digital Leaders 100 List for potential social impact, and voted in the top 3 by none other than Richard Branson for his “Screw Business as Usual” Virgin Unite Global Challenge.

Bournemouth, Christchurch & Poole are set to benefit with the virtual launch of their own BCP Community Map on Thursday 26th March 2020.

 

What is aDoddle?

Ever looked for a restaurant or hotel on Google? It’s usually a quick and easy search.

However, when it comes to help and support, finding the right service can be a very stressful, complicated process for those in need. It can also be time-consuming and off-putting for local businesses looking to sponsor a charity or organisation that fits with their vision and values.

aDoddle’s aim is to change that.

This UK-wide project is the brainchild of founder Jaki King, who has dedicated her life to three crucial areas; People, Communities & Change.

aDoddle is an interactive community map that will support charities & community projects, and connect local businesses with sponsorship and volunteering opportunities.

The map supports:

  • People in need to find help and support
  • Charities to highlight their services
  • Community projects
  • Businesses to discover charity partnerships & volunteering opportunities for staff
  • Universities to develop new avenues for research

 

Why are Dutton Gregory supporting aDoddle?

Dutton Gregory believes in not only supporting their local community, but pioneering positive changes to society through innovative concepts such as aDoddle

The firm’s aim is to look at new ways of supporting their community – not just by donating, but by joining the dots between those in need and organisations that can offer help, and maximising the support we have to offer.

Cate Battson, CSR Coordinator for Dutton Gregory Solicitors added:

We believe aDoddle represents the highest level of community togetherness, and Dutton Gregory are proud to support such a fantastic enterprise, especially in such uncertain times. It has enabled us to help many more individuals and local organisations than previously possible. We hope the BCP Community Map will offer support and guidance to our clients, staff and the wider community in the coming months.”

Jaki King, Founder of aDoddle and award-winning social enterprise If Everyone Cares CIC (IEC) commented:

“There are so many reasons why bringing this information together is both common sense and vital for people and communities. To make it work we not only need support from businesses like Dutton Gregory, but also from the charities and community organisations themselves. We are connecting communities – one click at a time.”
