The search box is part of ALISS – A Local Information System for Scotland – endorsed by Scottish Government to address the problem of giving local people and the workers who support them access to information about local sources of support and opportunities. This information can help people to lead healthier and more independent lives. Using ALISS can bring all this information together in one place.  Everyone can use ALISS to find information and to contribute to this information hub.   We can all use it to capture and organise knowledge about local resources.  By using ALISS we share them openly on the web for everyone to use.

The result is a rich picture of what our local communities have to offer and a growing information base that can be used to enhance existing information services – and create new ones.
