AOLs Innovation in the Community Wins

Posted: 17th Aug, 2004 By: MarkJ
ISP AOL UK and charity Citizens Online have today revealed the 30 winners of their 'Innovation in the Community Awards'. Each receives £2,000, plus a year's free subscription to AOL to help their project:

The AOL Innovation in the Community Awards, which were open to any community group or registered charity in the UK, received more than 800 applications in their second year.

John Fisher, CEO of Citizens Online and Chairman of the awards judging panel, said: “The response has been fantastic this year, proving that the Internet can play a crucial role in the activities of charities and community groups across the UK.”

“The judges were particularly impressed with the level of innovation shown by the winning projects - many of the applicants thought beyond simple information Web sites and have truly made the most of the possibilities of technology. We are really looking forward to seeing the impact of these awards at a grass roots level.
"

The 30 winning projects reveal the extent to which the Internet can be used to provide inspirational and innovative opportunities for local communities, disadvantaged children, the seriously ill and the elderly.

This year’s awards will provide funding for projects as wide-ranging as helping people with health problems stay in touch with their families; providing confidential counselling and therapy; tackling crime; creating an online historical archive; and enabling young people to develop important life skills. Several of the projects will take advantage of broadband technology.


There are far too many winners to list, so here's a small sample of three:

Emergency Medical Care, based in West Lothian, Scotland, which will make the most of broadband by expanding the first aid advice and courses it offers via its Web site.

Notting Hill Housing Trust in West London, which aims to give young people a voice in their local community. It will set up a 24/7 community youth radio station, which will be broadcast online before going “on air”.

St John’s Pre-School in Toxteth, Liverpool that will create a “magic carpet”, to educate and entertain local children. Using a large rug, a computer, a broadband Internet connection, and a colour monitor, it will take the children on virtual journeys around the world or back in time.
