Link-ages started when our founder saw first-hand how a lack of confidence, experience and accessibility could mean older people are left out of family communications
Being left out of communications between family and friends can contribute to loneliness and social isolation. Our founder witnessed this starting to happen as her own relatives became older and, realising that existing digital communication platforms did not address the specific needs of older or vulnerable people, decided to create a digital communication platform that could be used by all.
Link-ages was designed and built to address this issue. The platform was designed with input from older people so that we could fully understand their needs. Security, privacy and ease of use were given the highest priority. The result is a suite of apps that can improve the well-being of older and vulnerable people by giving them the same access to communication that many of us take for granted.
