MEMap 02 Feb 2017
Based on his personal experience of CFS/ME and expertise as a software developer, Steven Shaw wants to create a website and linked app which enables people with CFS/ME to share the experience of peers who have achieved progress or success with improving their health. The app would model that success into a personalised tool allowing users to try change management themselves. The tech encapsulates good practice that patients have experienced via various coaching or therapeutic approaches and establishes a new role for tech, addressing the shortcomings patients have reported concerning standard treatments. The intent is a step-change in therapy tech.

Co-design for Mental Health 02 Feb 2017
Erika Renedo Illaregi set up Bidean Co-design as a CIC in early 2017. Her idea is to develop and deliver design workshops, during which mental health service users co-design products that help with their symptoms (for example, jewellery that is designed to prevent panic attacks and tablecloths that facilitate conversation during meals for those with communication difficulties). With PHF funding, she will test and evaluate the workshops and develop partnerships with mental health organisations with whom she could collaborate in future to replicate and scale-up the idea. During the course of her idea development period, Erika aims to exhibit the designs to the public as a way of tackling stigma associated with mental health and empowering her participants.

Although Muscle Owl has already produced over 50 podcast episodes, it has never received any funding. Peter and his co-editor Michaela would like to develop and raise awareness of the organisation, allowing it to reach more people and offer more diverse and informative material.

Robert Allen has worked in business development for over 10 years. He has extensive commercial and non-profit sector experience, having been Director of South Cheshire Chamber of Commerce and Director of Partnerships at a Crewe Housing Association. Robert believes that established business accelerator and incubator models (both public and private) focus solely on a small elite number of start-ups, early-stage, growth-driven companies, excluding would be entrepreneurs from less well-off social and economic backgrounds who have no or low incomes. He wants to design and deliver a radically inclusive start-up accelerator / incubator for people with no or low income and create a social movement that builds sustainable businesses, one that embraces alternative finance models, delivering social and economic change and ultimately bringing inclusivity to start-up ecosystems across the UK and beyond.
