ALONE’s BConnect service connects organisations and individuals with the knowledge, training and technology they need to support people to live independently at home. We aim to increase efficiency of services for older people in Ireland and prevent duplication of services.

Through our coordination of Befriending Network Ireland (BNI), we support more than 50 befriending organisations across the country. The BConnect technology platform includes a Management Information System, mobile apps and assistive technology solutions.
