How We'll Pay For It

The Dual Diagnosis Hub CIC (Community Interest Company)  offers a transformative website development service that focuses on creating microsites for Integrated Care Systems (ICS), addiction service providers, and NHS Foundation Trusts in the UK. These microsites are locally focused extensions of the main Dual Diagnosis Hub, tailored to meet the specific needs of diverse communities and improve access to resources for individuals with dual diagnoses across the UK.

Core Features of the Microsites

The microsites boast an array of features, each designed to enhance the user experience and provide comprehensive support:

  1. Local Mental Health Information: Each microsite includes sections dedicated to various mental health diagnoses, offering localised content through engaging text and video resources.

  2. Localised Resources Directory: A filterable directory provides resources specific to each diagnosis, including local support groups, healthcare providers, and emergency services.

  3. Local Dual Diagnosis Recovery Resources: These include tools, inspirational quotes, online courses, and links to national organisations, curated to support the local community’s recovery journey.

  4. Local Carers and Family Resources: The microsites offer resources for carers and family members, providing guidance and support for those caring for individuals with a dual diagnosis.

  5. Professional Resources: Tailored resources for healthcare providers and professionals include local training programs, research papers, and guidelines specific to dual diagnosis treatment.

  6. Local Crisis Support: Contact details for local crisis teams and emergency services are prominently featured for easy access.

  7. Interactive Tools: The microsites include tools for diagnosis, treatment planning, and progress tracking, customized to align with local healthcare practices.

  8. Local Events Calendar for Local Service User Forums & Other Types of Events: Calendars of local events and moderated online spaces enable community engagement and peer support.

  9. Document Libraries: Access to vital local documents, research papers, treatment guidelines, and best practices.

  10. Seamless Integration with Main Hub: Each microsite maintains a connection with the main Dual Diagnosis Hub, ensuring consistency and broader resource access.

Advanced Accessibility Features

The microsites will be designed with advanced accessibility features, ensuring that individuals with visual or physical disabilities can easily navigate and use the site.

Multilingual Capabilities

Addressing the diverse linguistic needs of the UK population, the microsites offer automatic translation into the most commonly spoken languages in the UK or in your service’s area if you prefer.

This feature helps to break down the language barriers, making the sites more accessible and relevant to non-English speakers.

This is only a brief overview of the features our custom microsites will offer, but each microsite’s features will be developed with the local community’s needs in mind and within reason, any tool or content type could feasibly be integrated into the site if needed and would be useful to local service users.
