Have your say on Rotherham’s Community Directory

8th January 2019

Rotherham’s Community Directory, Rotherham Gismo, is going to be going through some changes in 2019 and we want to know how you use it, if it can be improved and how we could develop it further.

Rotherham Gismo is a free to use and free to browse online community directory of organisations working on a not-for-profit basis to help people living and working in Rotherham.

We have secured some resources from Rotherham Clinical Commissioning Group to develop the website and we need your help to make it the best it can be.

Over the last few months we have been working with groups to update the information and get feedback on the usability of the site and we are already committed to:

  • Making the website mobile friendly
  • Simplifying the way groups can register and update their information
  • Improving the search function

But we would like your suggestions on how we could develop it further, tell us what works well, what could be improved and what, if anything, is missing.

How can you get involved?
