As part of our work in the Dalton and Rawthorpe area of Kirklees we are supporting Thumbprintcity, who are delivering pilots looking at how SMS mailing lists can help facilitate dialogue between residents and services.

It’s gone down very well in the area and other public services will soon be following Simon’s example.
