We use digital to impact and improve the lives of vulnerable people who are marginalised by their circumstances.
Code4000 is Europe's first prison coding workshop, helping to break the cycle of crime by teaching offenders how to program computers to make websites. During 2019, Yoomee partnered with Code4000 to set up a hub in Sheffield to employ ex-offenders as software developers.
Using open source tools from Rasa, we are currently building a set of new digital products that engage with humans using natural conversation (called "chatbots"). By using the latest innovations in machine learning and artificial intelligence we can help you deliver tech for good services in a radically new way.
We co-designed and built Elefriends, Mind's popular online peer support community for vulnerable people. It has 100,000+ members, 85% of whom say it's helped them better manage their mental health –making it the UK's most successful online peer support service.
With funding from Bloomberg Philanthropies, we researched, designed and built Comoodle, a new model of service delivery for Kirklees Council, with the emphasis on sharing what's already in the community. Over 2,600 sharable resources are now available in Huddersfield and beyond.
We designed and developed the go-to place for online information about mental health in Leeds; combining knowledge, resources and materials from across city: the NHS, Leeds City Council and voluntary organisations. Our co-design approach won a Patient Engagement Award in 2017.
Time to Change is a growing social movement working to change the way we all think and act about mental health problems. We provide ongoing strategy, research and design support to ensure their website is focused on, and speaks to, key audiences about their attitudes towards people with mental health problems.
