News | 15 Sep 2017
This digital platform helps young people and adults find resilience when someone in their family is dying or has died.
Innovation Unit has been working on Better Endings, a year long programme in Lambeth and Southwark that changes the way we as a society deal with death, dying and grief. Throughout the project we have formed an inspirational community of people who think, design and test radically new approaches to end of life care and support.
Bounce Works forms part of this community. The social enterprise makes digital products that build emotional resilience for young people in an engaging and meaningful way. Apart of Me is their latest digital platform that provides a safe virtual space to help young people and adults find resilience when someone in their family is dying or has died.
“What’s amazing and unique about Apart of Me is children can create a legacy alongside their ill family member.”Olly Clabburn
