We create free-to-use national mobile self-help apps that allow educational, health and care providers in the UK to offer their communities additional digital support.

The mental health crisis, the pandemic, chronic underfunding, and long waiting lists pose enormous challenges for providers of care - and the people they safeguard.

In these difficult times, it's crucial that people have easy access to trusted information, so they can better look after their health and find support when they need it.

Working directly with users, health experts and trustworthy partners, we co-create quality-assured customisable apps that make it easy for you to:

  • provide reliable health and wellbeing information - highly targeted and instantly accessible in one place, even when offline
  • promote safe self-care - and reduce avoidable pressure on services
  • signpost services - to help people find and access the right care

To better support people with physical or mental health concerns, or who have reached crisis point, you can:

  • use available apps for free
  • add customised local homepages (as part of an optional premium service)
  • build your own-brand information app
