Our charitable arm, Splendid Things, is busying working in collaboration with Kindred Minds and PSS on the ‘Blog Yourself Well’ project. The project sees digital technologies used to promote positive health and well-being across Merseyside. So far Splendid Things has worked with a group of participants from Kindred Minds and PSS to produce the frameworks for a website that has the functions to host a blog, have events listings, display artwork, contain links to other health & well-being sites and much more.
The team is now working with a group of trainee Community Reporters to get them skilled-up in how to use digital media to produce stories on the general topic of health & well-being. These stories will then be published on the website and available for the wider community to comment on and discuss in Spring/Summer 2015 when the website officially launches!
Following the launch, we will be training a second group of Community Reporters and a team of moderators who will look at the website in the future. PSS will also be working with their Digital Champions to run short workshops on how to use the website and keep safe online. Check back later in the year, to see how this project progresses!
