LWM is a free multi-layered map for health/care workers and the Public in Lewisham, which shows where to go locally for health and wellbeing provision

Purpose/Objective of the Role

LWM is a free multi-layered map for health/care workers and the Public in Lewisham, which shows where to go locally for health and wellbeing provision. There are hundreds of  places already marked, and it is currently being trialled with groups of ‘link workers’ in health and care services across the borough. We aim to accelerate wider distribution of this map through the community to help empower those most in health need.

We need to make the map look and work better so that we can make this a truly useful map for the people of Lewisham

Improving the look and organisation of the map on-screen using simple Google Maps techniques and software

Developing the content and methodology that underlies the map using Google My Maps software, or simple data manipulation of tables. If possible, use of  the Google Maps API to develop the map.

Checking, validating, and updating data on and underlying the map to ensure it is accurate and comprehensible.

Skills Required 

Enthusiasm for being part of a team constructing a great map for ‘signposting’ for those in most health and well being need, and those who help them

Attention to detail and accuracy

Ability to enter and adjust information on a computer or other electronic device.

Any specific skills or experience directly relevant to the particular tasks above would be a bonus.
