Dundee Carers Centre 20 Aug 2018

The organisation currently has a main website www.dundeecarerscentre.org.uk and over the years has added three other sites, to support additional services for carers and disabled people that have been secured by the Centre. These are specifically for young carers, short breaks and self-directed support. The main site (and young carers site) were designed in 2009 and therefore navigation is complex and these sites are not optimised for use by mobile devices. This funding would be used to consult on, design and build a new main website for the organisation and re-design www.youngcarers.co.uk. This and the current sites for short breaks and self-directed support would be incorporated into specific areas on the main one, whilst still keeping their own URLs' and identity. The consultation process for re-design will involve carers and young carers to ensure they contain the relevant information, are easy to navigate and also address any issues regarding accessibility. The new site(s) will reflect the ethos and values of our organisation and most importantly allows us to provide easily accessible relevant information and digital content, to support the implementation of the Carers (Scotland) Act 2016 locally, to carers of all ages.

Helensburgh and Lomond Carers SCIO 18 Dec 2018

There are two components to our request: Component 1 – Refresh and develop our website, IT equipment, and staff training to manage the website We currently have a live website which was developed by a volunteer and has been 'added to' over many years. It is not user friendly, it does not have the capability of promoting our services in the wider community and it is in need of a full overhaul. Carers recently told us, "if we were able to access the website for information, we would feel a little more connected." Young carers said they would like to be able to "add Youtube links and sound bites" We could use the website in many more ways and in relation to Carers Act and we see this as a means of engaging with those carers who are 'hidden' in our community. Key areas to be upgraded include putting on a suite of forms including referral forms training course/activities booking forms, events calendar, embed plug-ins for video, documents management - information on carers right and entitlements, resources, mail chimp, social media platforms. The website needs to look professional, it needs to be sharp, and easy to navigate. The system will be set to do a back-up every 24 hours with a 4 x day retention period. Purchase 2 x laptops to enable our Carer Support Workers to complete adult carer support plans and young carer statements The laptops will allow them to do more outreach work, supporting carers living in remote and rural areas. Connecting remotely to the management information system, will create efficiency of working time, allowing documents to be completed and uploaded securely to the system. Component 2 Upgrade our current management information system to meet new requirements including staff training. Our current case management information system is used to gather carer outcome based evidence. We wish to upgrade the system to ensure we have the capacity to collect the data required by the Scottish Government and Argyll & Bute HSCP. It will enable us to get an accurate picture of the Carers we are supporting, the impact, that their caring role is having on their own health & well-being, the types of support they are receiving and the positive impact our support services is having and measure the progress of their caring journey. It will also allow us to extrapolate the necessary reports/information required. All fully compliant with GDPR Regulations. We will purchase onsite time with developers to develop the system to meet these needs and train the staff on the system to ensure they are aware of its capacity, and have the permissions enabling us to administer/progress development of the system to include the following: • Create additional fields to ensure Carer Census information is recorded/reported • Staff training to ensure they are fully competent to operate the system • Make changes to workflow processes to capture ACSP and YCS data including emergency and future planning, bereavement and end of life support

Mid Argyll Youth Development services (MAYDS) 18 Dec 2018

MAYDS is asking the SCVO to fund a complete overhaul of our I.T. system. The items requested will allow our current system to be streamlined, improving security and data integrity. The new pc's will replace ageing systems that are becoming problematic and obsolete. Software costs are to bring aging software up to date. All of the items are essential to allow us to reach our goal, which is to bring our system up to a modern standard and in doing so improving our productivity, therefore allowing us to provide our services in a more economic, young person centered and timely manner. MAYDS has been running for a number of years and a lot of the current system has either been in place since our inception or been add ons as and when the need has arisen and funding has allowed. Redeveloping the website to make it more young person friendly and developing an App for young carers brings MAYDS into the modern world of technology, where young people are based. The chance to put in place a strong system that will allow staff and young carers ease of use, accessibility and the most up to date software is a wonderful and much appreciated opportunity.

The Haven 20 Aug 2018

This request is for funding to: Cover the costs of a website development company to redesign and update The Haven website, with a particular focus on enhancing the information available relevant to carers and to bereaved carers, thereby improving The Haven's ability to support carers and increase the numbers of carers supported. Provide training for Haven staff to manage the ongoing updating and content management of the website, enabling additional information to be added in a timely and responsive manner, and enhancing ongoing sustainability of the new website by having a skilled workforce in place to maintain and further develop the website on an ongoing basis. The current website does not demonstrate the breadth or depth of support and information available now that there are 3 Haven centres. The numbers of carers supported by The Haven is increasing year on year as the new centres build capacity. A new website will support this and build on the quality of information services we offer.
