Tech for good

Using technology to do good

This Mental Health Awareness Week, we take a look at the work we do with tech companies to help address the mental wellbeing of young people.

Earlier this year, we launched our challenge to get start-up tech companies involved with improving the lives of young people. We’ve been working with Bethnal Green Ventures (BGV) since summer of last year to encourage tech initiatives to launch software and apps that will help at-risk young people.
