  • to identify user recommended organisations, services and products displayed on our site by tagging each with the Butterfly Hearts Logo. (This will identify that the majority of reviews /comments received from our members identifies the item as suitable for to needs).

  • to make relevant up to date information available 24/7. 

Members have identified:

  • Within Australia the 'disability sector' in recent years has seen enormous growth and with the identified ageing population this growth is expected to continue.

  • There is a void of readily available information in the community if the user does not know what are their entitlements and how to access them.

  • Our site intends to address this short fall by being a one stop shop 'so to say'. A site where visitors can access a variety of services and products that could be helpful to the person experiencing mobility issues.

  • Members have identified a desire to be treated as worthwhile members of our community and given the ability to partake in normal community activities. This project will encourage this to be achieved.    

Objectives

The Butterfly Hearts Project will;

  • Provide those experiencing mobility and other issues with information, encouragement and access to user product or service reviews to assist the potential user to make 'Informed‘ decisions as to whether that service or product is right for them.

  • Provide an avenue to encourage businesses and organisation to become better providers of end user experience and encourage businesses and services to become ‘All People friendly'.

  • Work to remove the stigma around “disability” and encourage “All People Friendly”

  • Advocate for all people in getting decision makers to accept we should be concentrating on “All People Friendly” accessibility and not Disability as is the current approach.

  • Encourage decision makers to understand that change of thinking will also result in change in installation cost factor, as all venues take up the 'all people friendly' model the excessive cost barrier associated with disability provision will be eliminated. 

  • The Hearts and Hands Community Development - Butterfly Hearts project,  will remain a user based 'Not for Profit' project.

  • Any and all income generated or donated through Butterfly Hearts in excess of running and development needs will be used to expand and further develop Hearts and Hands Community Development charity and its projects.

Mission Statement

The Butterfly Hearts web-site will enhance the dignity and quality of life of individuals, families, carers and communities by working towards eliminating barriers to opportunity and helping people reach their fullest potential through the power of information and access to others experience and ideas."
