We use digital to impact and improve the lives of vulnerable people who are marginalised by their circumstances.
Our greatest hits
Code4000 is Europe's first prison coding workshop, helping to break the cycle of crime. In early 2019, we partnered with Code4000 to set up a hub in Sheffield to employ five ex-offenders as software developers.
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.
We built an integrated volunteering platform, online community and crowd funding site to engage with young people across the UK. The service was used by 5,000 charity partners and a quarter of a million young people, and since 2006 has delivered more than a million volunteering opportunities for 14-25 year olds across England.
