I feel that to our detriment, modern urban society has lost its sense of community. There is so much advantage in being part of a community and yet most people barely know their immediate neighbours. OurHood seems to be a great tool for bringing back a sense of community in a neighbourhood. It’s great for sharing information, for security notices and much more. I’m sure as it becomes more popular there will be new uses found for it.
OurHood is an amazing way to stay in touch with what’s happening in your neighbourhood - the app is incredibly user-friendly and has a great team behind it!
OurHood supplies a platform that is both user-friendly and informative, allowing neighbours that would otherwise not know each other to stay connected. Whether you are having a garage sale or reporting a crime in your area, it's the ideal way to let your community stay in the loop. If you are ever in troublesome situation consult their 'important numbers' tab and find relevant contact details for the GP/OKCID or City.
The Apps and website are really awesome, it really helps with neighbourhood notifications and crime notices. Thanks!
Community information at its best! Thank you for an amazing tool to get the community talking and interacting. It's a privilege to see this being developed out of South Africa.
We are always looking for ways to effectively engage citizens and whilst we continue to push messages out on our platforms we realise that citizens don’t just want to have a conversation with us about what we think is important to them, but also want to connect with their neighbours about what is meaningful to them. Through the OurHood pilot in Atlantis, we hope to see citizens engaging with each other and accessing relevant City information so that awareness can be raised about local issues which can be addressed at a local level.
To improve communication to PCA members, we partnered with OurHood to share information quickly and safely.
Loved it Such a good idea - would love to get more of my neighbours on here.
