Arm your employees with the best support

Organisations and occupational therapists are increasingly using technology to support the wellbeing of their staff.  Brain in Hand helps people with mental health conditions, autism and learning difficulties to start, stay and flourish in work.

An innovative and unique approach, Brain in Hand empowers employees to take control of their troubles, and self-manage day to day problems. It works with each person’s individual challenges to be the best that they can be. Our technique, technology and team of professionals are there, whenever and wherever needed at work.

Almost 4,000 people across the UK have used Brain in Hand achieve their goals, including employees and apprentices at Marks & Spencer, NFU Mutual, Defra, the Dogs Trust, Asda and the Civil Servant’s charity For You By You. A partner of The National Autistic Society, our award-winning system is used by around 60 organisations and Local Authorities. We’re named by the DWP as a best practice tool.

What is Brain in Hand?

Traditional models of support can be labour-intensive and are often not available when the person needs it most. Brain in Hand offers an innovative solution to this problem. Take a look at our technology page to find out more.
