In February 2021, we awarded a grant of over £15,000 to support the development and of the SYNERGISE app for young people in Gibraltar. We are pleased to learn that the App is now live and was launched on 4 November at the Digital Skills Academy. The event gave students from Gibraltar College the opportunity to participate in a training session so they could experience and familiarise themselves with the app and its features.

The SYNERGISE app aims to provide support to young people aged 15 – 30 with Special Educational Needs, Social, Emotional & Mental Health, behavioral difficulties, health issues, and those who are generally disengaged from education. The app assists with recording work experience and allows the user to securely message their key contacts, as well as providing travel information, emergency numbers and memory games. Synergise has also been affiliated with the Gibraltar Disability Society.

The app is currently only available on iPhone but will shortly be available to android users in Gibraltar. We’d like to congratulate Synergy for their work in designing and launching the app and look forward to hearing about its success.
