About the team
We are team MS. We were ex-colleagues, and we enjoyed working with each other last time (well, most of the time). So apart from contributing ideas for the public good, we came to Build for Good to relive the good old days.
Team members: Wong Wen Yu, Catherine Cha, Bui Thuy Hanh
A wheel-chaired resident missed his doctor’s appointment due to not being aware of lift maintenance. A stay-at-home mom with an infant needed to make last-minute arrangements because she didn’t know about demolition work upstairs.
Every day, changes in our neighbouring area affect residents’ day-to-day lives. However, some affected residents are not aware of those changes announcements in advance. Hence, they are unable to make timely decisions to minimise interruptions to their lives.
We identified 3 groups of residents that get affected the most by residential area changes. They are:
- Caregivers and their dependents due to limited mobility (e.g. wheel-chaired parent, young infant)
- Homebound residents due to lifestyle/career choices (e.g. retirees, work-from-home professionals)
- Non-homebound residents but household decision makers.
For these 3 targeted groups, on top of existing notice boards, we want to offer another channel that allows announcement retrieval more accessible, personalised and easy-to-action-on.
