The Resource Bank has been set up to include all sorts of things that may be of help to the MOVE partners. We’re looking for partners to let us know of websites that could be useful, of forms and documentation that they may use that helps ease processes etc. If you have something like this, then please let Les know, by sending a link, or a PDF document, or whatever it is and he can add it to the ‘Bank’. Please have a look at what we have and see if you can add to the list. Some of the items can be reached simply by clicking on the title, while others will need their web address copied and pasted into a new browser.

From Jackie Elton, of Community Lincs: Link to LCC Mileage for life.
Elefriends is a supportive online community where you can be yourself. We all know what it’s like to struggle sometimes, but now there’s a safe place to listen . It is a moderated site operated by Mind and provides a useful forum for support. They have loads of different communication ways including single tap signs to validate feelings and acknowledge receipt and sight of messages so that individuals who are having issues with verbalising feelings are still able to acknowledge without having to put things into words. The site is moderated 24/7 and allows for Private Messaging to be turned off so that there is no specific requirement or pressure to respond.( From Fran Marritt, VANL)
Did you know that Samaritans are now doing a response service by text – ideal for anyone with hearing impairment. The number is 07725 909090, and their email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Just thought this might be useful on occasion for some of our participants and clients.
