Delivering two new tools to help eliminate family violence in our communities
Somar Digital worked alongside the Ministry of Social Development and Dentsu Creative to launch the In Your Hands website and Service Finder Tool widget which were released alongside a suite of digital tools as part of Te Aorerekura - Aotearoa’s National Strategy to Eliminate Family and Sexual Violence.
Modern and Accessible
Both In Your Hands and the Service Finder Tool have been designed and built to modern web design and accessibility standards. Our developers and testers at Somar Digital have a lot of expertise in building digital products that meet accessibility requirements. Making these tools widely accessible to people is an important factor in helping to reduce family violence.
Simple & Easy to Use
The Service Finder Tool takes the hassle out of finding the relevant services for the people who need them most. Users have the ability to filter services via location and opening hours as well as more specific requests like LBGTQIA+ friendly and NZ sign language interpreter availability.
This is the first phase of the project, with several more weeks of development still to come which include adding a live chat to the In Your Hands site. The Somar Digital team is committed to improving these tools and responding to feedback from users.
Helping Our Communities
Both projects are part of a focused approach by Somar Digital to choose to work on projects that not only make a tangible difference to the community but also connect communities that are in need. In Your Hands and the Service Finder Tool are going to make finding help a lot easier for people in need.
