Over 80% of new arrivals were unaware of existing apps that could help their settlement in Australia.
What it does
DISCOVER is a simple website that has the most relevant, refugee friendly apps AND how to use them! We’ll select the apps that enable refugees to access the information that they want, when they want it without reliance on a third party.
How I built it
The wireframes for the prototype were developed in Invision and are easily converted to Wordpress.
Challenges I ran into
Understanding how the web platform would be used by our target customers. How to build a grassroots community of users and content creators.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
A very diverse team of people that have worked collaboratively on solving this problem.
What I learned
Lack of app awareness in target cohort.
What's next for DISCOVER
The future we see for DISCOVER is the widespread use of it as a ‘first stop’ for new arrivals. We also see expansion of the platform to other states and territories and to include other digital services. We will continue to build relationships with stakeholders and customers to continuously improve.
