This month, I’ve been taking a look at uhad2bethere.co.uk which aims to be a subject based online directory of websites and the services or information they provide. The website has a lot of information, but it is a bit hard to find if you are not looking for something specific. The site search engine is good – type in ‘Independent Living’ and you get the Independent Living fund, various independent living centres, and independent living products – all useful search results.
Type in ‘Wolverhampton’ and the search results include the One Voice website (you are here!), and a conductive education centre.
So the search engine is very useful. But if you just browse a subject, you might lose 2 hours of your life! There is a lot of information on the site, and sometimes it’s not in the category you would expect, but the site is well worth repeated visits, as you are likely to learn something new, even if it wasn’t what you were looking for!
Did you know, for example, that there is an accessible property register?
I didn’t know until I visited uhad2bethere, But it is a site I will tell people about in future, because finding accessible accomodation is always difficult.
I give uhad2bethere site the big thumbs up, but use the search engine if you are looking for something specific.
