Shortlisted for Social Enterprise UK Tech for Good award!

Our work with Feebris and Havering Health, implementing virtual care technology in care homes has been shortlisted in the UK Social Enterprise Awards Tech for Good category. 

We’re delighted to be a finalist in the UK Social Enterprise Awards, recognising us as one of the country’s most innovative and impactful businesses.​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌

Social enterprises are mission-led businesses that reinvest or donate most of their profits for a social or environmental purpose. As a business we exist to support people across North East London to live healthier, happier lives and work with communities and partners across health and social care to transform services for residents.

We’ve beaten stiff competition to make the UK Social Enterprise Awards shortlist this year, which attracted more than 400 entries from all over the country. Awards recognise sector-leading excellence and innovation across a diverse range of criteria, and we’re a finalist in the ‘Tech for Good’ category.

It can be a struggle getting elderly residents in care homes the healthcare that they need in a timely way. This can lead to costly hospitalisations, normally resulting in worse health and care outcomes, that earlier intervention could have avoided.

We teamed up with Feebris, an AI-powered mobile platform for community-based diagnosis and monitoring, and Havering Health, a Federation of 41 General Practices in the London Borough of Havering, to implement virtual care technology in 30 care homes, supporting the health management of approx 1,000 residents. We’re delighted to have been shortlisted for this award and hope this recognition may inspire further investment to support care homes and their residents.

Our Awards are the ultimate showcase of the impact and excellence of social enterprises. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​Those who made the shortlist are a beacon of innovation, optimism and resilience in turbulent times.

“‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​These are trailblazers and standard-setters for better business, making profit but not putting it before people and planet – and they do all this under the same immense pressures as other businesses, with the long-term impacts of Covid and a national cost of living crisis. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​

“The challenges we face as a society demand new approaches and a shift in how businesses – big and small – act.‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​ Social enterprises celebrated at our Awards are the brightest stars in a brilliant sector, giving us all inspiration and motivation to do business better
