Neatebox feel that no person should feel concerned about being able to enjoy their independence. In pursuing their mission to lead society in becoming more inclusive to everyone, they have developed solutions that empower disabled people in their daily life and ease the pressure on those who are tasked to support them. Their two apps, ‘Button’ and ‘Welcome’, are used across the UK and Ireland to foster the independent lifestyles of disabled people. With them, the aim is to reduce anxiety, increase social mobility and ultimately promote a very real change in society's attitude towards those who have so often been ignored.
