ALONE, in partnership with NetwellCASALA were one of four organisations presented with the THINKTECH award, an initiative led by Social Innovation Fund Ireland and sponsored by the Department of Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government. The  grant,  of €170,000 cash and €50,000 non-financial support helps to grow and sustain technology driven ideas for a better Ireland. The ALONE Platform is a  technology platform that redefines care for the older person. This platform enables them to monitor their wellness, better communicate their needs with carers, volunteers and their support organisations, which ultimately empowers them to age well at home.
