We're delighted to announce that we are one of nine businesses selected to tackle the challenges faced by an ageing society.

We will spend the next 6 months working out of specialist facility, The Biosphere, which is tailored to the commercialisation of life sciences and innovation, research and development.

The programme which is being delivered by the Innovation SuperNetwork in partnership with the National Innovation Centre for Ageing at Newcastle University (NICA), Newcastle City Council, Northstar Ventures and Aging2.0, worked with us and other hopefuls to understand the breadth of challenges across the ageing space, supported idea generation around potential solutions and enabled new collaborations to form.

For our involvement in this project we are developing Story Swap, an innovative service empowering socially isolated older people to share stories with children and young people. This project will run until October 2019 and give us the opportunity to engage a wider variety of people in the magic of stories.
