Hello, my name is Ben Attenborough and I’ve created this website in collaboration with Heather Edwards and the Come Singing team.
Heather asked me to write a few words about the direction of the website that this funding will enable.
My plan is to introduce a system whereby users can create profiles for different people (including themselves) which different memories can be attached to.
The ultimate idea is that users can than share these profiles with a carer who would then have access to the memories as well as a bit of information about the patient they are caring for. Of course it will be up to the user who they share information with and some thought will need to go into how to ‘vet’ carers.
Of course for many users this service will remain just as a way for them to store memories and will not be used by a carer. However these users may still want to share the information with other family members.
We are also looking to upgrade the site hosting. This is a bit technically but it should make the site quicker to ‘load up’ as well as keeping backups of the data to minimise the risk of the site losing information.
