App Aid gives charities grant funding to support the creation of Smartphone apps to help the communities they serve. From the life-saving ‘Responder’ app for St John Ambulance, to the conversation-starting ‘Check In’ app for beyondblue, App Aid has enabled charities to leverage mobile technology to make a difference.

In 2014, we’re supporting two charities to launch apps for good.

Baker IDI will launch YoYo, an app that encourages Australians to reduce their inactivity to decrease the health risks associated with prolonged sitting.

We’ll also be supporting Hello Sunday Morning to develop an app that will let you join the Hello Sunday Morning community, access their award-winning three month program, set goals, change habits, plus track your alcohol, mood and fitness progress.

beyondblue

beyondblue - Check In app

beyondblue’s 'Check-in' app aims to make it easier for young people to have important conversations with friends who they are concerned may be experiencing depression or anxiety.

It lets young people choose options to construct a step-by-step plan for approaching a friend they’re worried about.

beyondblue was able to launch this app after winning Vodafone Foundation's App Aid in 2013.

beyondblue was established in 2000 and is one of Australia’s leading mental health charities. The charity works towards creating an understanding of mental health issues amongst the Australian population and encourages people going through a difficult time to seek help and offers avenues to do so.
