COVID-19 Community Toolbox

#StopTheSpread

About

In response to the ongoing and escalating Coronavirus crisis and the new challenges it is creating for Local Government and Higher Education sectors - we have created a global initiative to provide support with digital tools.

The COVID-19 Community Toolbox is a place to share assets and resources to build digital services to help support communities through the Coronavirus crisis.

We know that many of our local authority customers are having to react quickly and efficiently to be able to support citizens.

We want to know how we can best support your organisation at this time, please reach out to us at info@jadu.net with further ways we can support.
