What is Go Genie? It is a one stop shop to find access information online. It puts disabled people, their families, carers and friends at it’s heart.

It is a network of knowledge to get you in.

We want to take the best of digital, social media and social networking and make it useful for disabled people. It puts Disabled people in the driving seat and ensures they are not left behind.

We want to plan a trip out, go to the shops, use local services, hang out with our mates and know where to find up to date access information on line easily. We want to update and share tips. Know who and where to contact and complain via Go Genie to report problems.

There may be further resources depending on further funding and investment so tell us what is possible with £6K what could you do if there was the funds available – that and more.

Who is funding it? This is being funded through NESTA Reboot Britain programme. A two year programme launched in July 2009 to look at the challenges we face as acountry and the new possibilities that a networked, digital world offers to overcome them. It aims to test the potential that web 2.0 and digital technology has for transforming essential but often challenging public services.

We are open to either a one off build that is flexible and agile that can be carried forward by another company and are also open to developing a longer term mutual relationship. If you want to talk further about anything of the above please contact us.
