Hey everyone – we have been working hard to give you a really good overview of all the projects at the hackathon – and we’ve done it! So without further ado – here is a taster of the projects (with more details in the links)…
Project: Better comms for all!
The Community Comms Collective are (insanely) running their entire operation from a couple of spreadsheets. They have basically outgrown their current system and like a teenager wearing toddler clothes, they need something that means they can take their work to the next level, while keeping their operations efficient and straightforward…
Project: Do I need a lawyer?
Most of the time, people don’t realise that a lawyer could help with things like debts, housing, employment or all the other stuff in life somewhere represented in our country’s law.
Community Law wants to help people be able to identify if a lawyer could help – and that they could get free legal advice if something is wrong. A legal checkup is a simple way for anyone to self-diagnose if a lawyer might be able to help them.
A central tenant of CLWHV is the empowerment of the wider community, and in this case, they work to enable the community to engage with current and upcoming law reform, to take their own action within this important process. The Law Reform Pipeline page on the Community Law website is meant to facilitate this but the current format is kinda terrible. It is meant to enable people to engage with the Law Reform pipeline projects, but the information is hard to find, difficult to navigate, and doesn’t help the users engage with the process…
Project: Growing goodness
Common unity is a fantastic little charity that is growing, fast. The sheer numbers of projects and services they offer is growing quickly, and they do all their orders and admin via email or phone (which is making an administration nightmare!). But they also have a goal to feed 1000 kids a day within the next 18 months.
