CBIT in Hand, the UK’s first digital health intervention for families and professionals following head/brain injury launched in April 2021 following months of research, funding challenges and development. To see the incredible impact the app is already having across health settings is amazing.
We were delighted to be finalists at the Third Sector Awards on the 17th September in the Digital Innovation category and couldn’t be more proud of the team involved in its success. We congratulate our fellow finalists and award winner, Cherie Blair Foundation, for their outstanding achievements in the digital innovation category and celebrate their amazing work in this field.
The ground breaking app provides personalised support and information for anyone concerned about a child’s head injury, whether they are in hospital, home or out and about. The app provides instant access through personalised guides and ongoing support from our brain injury service if needed. Since it’s launch we have seen over 500 downloads which means more people know about head injury and the impact it can have and hopefully has helped to reduce the fear of the longer term impact of brain injury.
Lisa Turan – CEO of the Child Brain Injury Trust said…
To be finalists of such a high profile award so early on CBIT in hand’s journey is a true accolade for our charity and acknowledges the importance and relevance of the app. We have worked extremely hard to bring CBIT in Hand to life for the benefit of families and are so proud our achievement so far. Being a finalist not only provides an opportunity for celebration, but also gives us the recognition of how relevant CBIT in Hand is for the society.
Hannah Peters – Client strategist, 3 Sided Cube (developers)…
We are incredibly proud to have worked with the Child Brain Injury Trust to create a new mobile application that truly supports parents of children with an acquired brain injury.
From the inception of this project, while we performed user testing and immersion workshops, it became apparent that parents needed relevant information accessible and evolving as their situation changes. The app is a supporting tool that we hope will help many parents during difficult times.
We are looking forward to continuously evolving this app with CBIT in the future to offer further functionality to support parents.
