Team Bridgit have created a movement underpinned by technology and stories from their carer community and supported by nearly £1M in NHS England grants. They are a registered Social Enterprise and part of Microsofts first Global AI for Good Startup Cohort.
Bridgits mission is to empower the UKs 7 million family carers and in doing so help relief some of the pressures on the heath and social care system. They focus on ways to support preventative care delivery, recognizing a lot of our elderly generation can't use digital services themselves.
Bridgit have developed a unique set of accessible technologies, that support family carers to look after their loves ones both in the home and while away. They also provide support for the carers themselves through their app, online care coach sessions through a network of carer charities, and have launched a complete eCommerce store for carers, which through a donation scheme helps fund charities.
