Hi all. i'm trying to do a quick and dirty GIS map snapshot of VCS activity in york (with help from the city council) mostly by using awards for all grant recipients and the charity commission website. We can do a similar thing with volunteers through the volunteer centre and then make this publically available. Not only would it help identifying gaps with voluntary activity, but would help people have a way into voluntary activity in their localities. I'll read the various blog posts, but anyone done this? got any tips? @yorkcvs

Gets my vote! This can be done really cheaply by twitter hashtage/ facbook - and then prnted by a local anchor org (or CVS) and distributed by volunteers. We've had a stab at doing one here:http://streetlifeyork.wordpress.com and it's moving, but we'l see how it goes! The trick, for me, is how to link people with new ideas to existing support structures so that new ideas don't spend all their time setting up legal structures and committees.
