Funded by the Scottish Government and delivered by the ALLIANCE, A Local Information System for Scotland (ALISS) is an index of local sources of health and wellbeing support that may include not only traditional health and social care services but also local assets such as walks, cafes, activities and events – the sorts of things that people with long term conditions have identified as being important to their health and wellbeing. 

What can I use ALISS for?   

Signposting /Accessing health and wellbeing support – At present it can be very difficult to find out what is going on in local communities with information being dispersed across multiple directories, duplicated or not online / widely available. ALISS serves as a tool that presents one view of local sources of support, from multiple locations (for example different websites) allowing people to search for a single listing of what is available for a specified location and / or topic. This supports individuals seeking information for themselves or to provide to others. 

Sharing my knowledge of helpful support  - ALISS also serves as a tool to allow communities / multiple sectors to collaborate to gather and share content in a decentralised way: addressing traditional challenges of finding relevant information and keeping it up to date.
