Hope for the Community CIC

for Emotional support for parents of children with autism

Autism is a lifelong and disabling condition. Support for parents of children with autism is limited which has a profound negative effect on their mental health and caring ability. iHope Autism is an innovative, scalable web-based solution to this problem. It is rooted in positive psychology and provides emotional and peer support for parents and has the potential to improve parents’ coping skills, resilience and mental health.

Submitted to Emotional support for parents of children with autism

+me is an experimental device, designed as a support tool for ASD therapy. It looks like a soft pillow, producing lights and sounds in response to child's touch. Its purpose is to foster the development of basic social skills (eye-contact, joint attention, social-referencing) in small children. If experimentation is positive, it could be used to involve families in rehabilitation activities.

Calculus Energy Limited

Submitted to Food poverty - managing surplus food

We propose an artificial intelligence (AI) based marketplace for trading food surplus. Participants will be able to upload an image of the food, along with its description. Non profit organisations will be able to access the webapp and request the food item. To overcome the cumbersome process of entering the food description, an AI model will be deployed to identify food from the uploaded image.
