Our collaboration with Gattaca

Our collaboration with Gattaca

We’ve joined forces with our friends at Gattaca PLC. Together, we’re on a mission to improve the mental health and wellbeing of engineers around the globe.

Our collaboration vision: to ensure every engineer can access mental health and wellbeing support whenever and wherever they need it.

Our collaboration mission: to develop a Digital Wellbeing Hub, where engineers from across the globe can access support for a wide range of mental health and wellbeing services on demand.

Through our collaboration with Gattaca, we’re building on our common goals to connect more people working within the engineering and technology sector with the support they need.

Gattaca has generously pledged to raise £100,000 over the next 3 years to support the development of our Wellbeing hub.
