Live your life connected
Joining Hands is a simple app designed to bring people together. For anyone that feels isolated – young or old – it’s a way to connect to friends, carers, and all the things you care about most, from remembering appointments to shopping and managing carers.
Who is Joining Hands for?
Joining Hands is for people in need of extra support and all the people that provide it. It brings everyone together to share, support and care.
