The integrated Brain in Hand system

Brain in Hand is a digital self-management support system for people who need help remembering things, making decisions, planning, or managing anxiety. It's not condition-specific, but is often used by people who are autistic, who have learning difficulties, or who are managing mental health challenges. Combining human support and digital self-management technology, Brain in Hand helps people live more independently.

Our system is approved by government departments and in use throughout health, social care and higher education settings across the UK.

Onboard

One-to-one support

A qualified specialist helps you to identify your goals, recognise strengths, and develop solutions to overcome problems. We support each of our users to get started in the right way and keep making Brain in Hand work best for you.

Softwaretools

Web and mobile software

Simple self-management features help with managing anxiety, remembering things, planning, and making decisions. It's all personalised on a secure web page and accessed on your phone or smart device whenever you need it.

24H

Round-the-clock support

Whenever you need some extra help, you can use a simple traffic light system to let someone know you could use some support. This could be a Brain in Hand responder, or someone who already supports you.

With Brain in Hand, you don't have to think about what to do when things are hard. You've already thought about it.

Joined-up, personalised care

We help support services across the UK to achieve truly personalised, joined-up care. Working with service providers every step of the way, we ensure smooth implementation and maximum impact.

Users have control over their own independence, accessing the services they need when they need them. This allows those who support them to reach more vulnerable people within existing resources.

Users

A combination of digital tools and human support, all based on research and evidence about what works, helps people build independence, feel more confident, manage their own difficulties, and achieve their goals.

Health and social care

We are working with over 60 local authorities and health teams to get the right support to the right people. With effective implementation support, we enable services to ensure each person is as independent as is right for them.

Education

Thousands of students across 80% of UK universities use BiH through the Disabled Students' Allowance. University teams are making the most of the system too, joining up all the right support and resources in one place.
