Helping kids get their bounce back

Bounce Works is a social enterprise, making digital products for kids that build emotional resilience and wellbeing, and are playful, engaging and fun.

We meet children where they are, not where we’d like them to be.

Our Current Project

Apart of Me is a digital platform to help children and adults find resilience when someone in their family is dying or has died.

We are creating an ecosystem of psychologically-minded tools that can turn a family's nightmare into a reservoir of hope and wisdom for future generations. Apart of Me is an emotional support system, designed by experts in child bereavement and family psychology.

What people are saying about us?

Apart of Me is a refreshing resource that will help children and young people begin to explore their emotions and feelings when someone important to them has a life-limiting illness. The creative and imaginative design of the app will allow children and young people to develop an understanding of what is happening in their lives and through this they will be able to start making meaning about the experience, and help find ways to cope and manage. I think the app is an important and necessary resource.

What’s amazing and unique about Apart of Me is children can create a legacy alongside their ill family member… it provides a fun, interactive way to prompt and bridge conversations which can sometimes be extremely difficult to do, also creating a digital resource that will be invaluable for future generations.

If we’d had this game available to us when my wife was still alive… she would have enjoyed helping him create a memory box and having set tasks to do would’ve made this daunting task more manageable for her.

I look forward to being able to share this tool with our extensive networks of children, families, and professionals.
