Inclusion Cardiff: An empowering extranet

Great service here run by Cardiff City Council - which enables users of the system the chance to network, question, challenge & share ideas with a view to boosting inclusion and empowerment in a whole range of projects and services:


Inclusion Cardiff enables collaborative working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by providing an unlimited number of authorised users with access to secure groups and forums.
  • The site aims to empower users by explaining current social projects – with a facility to ask questions of the project team, or join in
  • It has a library of background reports and useful links that can be accessed and commented on by the user community
  • There are also areas where unregistered visitors can offer their views and ideas or join in with a range of discussion forums
  • It has a secure online document store, where authorised users can share and work on documents together
  • Content can be easily and quickly updated, giving users access to the most up-to-date information available
  • The extranet uses the latest Open Source software so there is no cost of additional users or groups.
Practical empowered citizenship in action that will help build the Big Society too. I wish them well. (Thanks to Tony Riches, of Cardiff City Council for this link)
