Your-Net -  www.your-net.com.au
Linking Communities Network Ltd and Chitoda has undertaken a new initiative in the way of a Web Based platform for local service providers. It is specifically designed for the Western Murrumbidgee region to assist homeless people and those requiring support. It provides a valuable information tool to service providers across the region (and those referring in- Correctional Centres etc.) to know which services are operating where and when. It is a modern day service map. Ever wonder when support services are outreaching to specific towns? The data will capture all service provision for all areas from Griffith, Hay, Leeton, Narrandera, Lake Cargelligo and more. It is current and holds potential and vision for mass growth.The platform self-detects the location of the user and provides information about supports available in that town. It also includes audio-visual mechanisms for people experiencing low literacy. Premium subscriptions for services are available with additional extra options including website linkages, analytics information (for reporting) as well as group membership with reminders, newsletters etc.
