b our bridge

b our bridge aims to empower rough sleepers to get themselves off the streets.

We are bridging gaps between rough sleepers and the general public through improved donation platform, which also increases personal safety and encourages society integration.

b

Rough sleepers will be given their 'b' which creates the bridge to achieving their personal goals.
Each hand held device contains bluetooth and NFC technology as well as a personal alarm. 
The Bluetooth reaches out to passers by, connecting the rough sleeper to members to the wider community.  
The technology is part powered by the spinning top plate which allows the device to be charged whilst its away from mains.

Donation App

The app would be downloaded by members of the general public who want to donate to the homeless, responsibly.
All donations go to a personal account run by a charity. It also provides the platform for the user to find out about the rough sleeper's recent spending of the donations, how far off they are from their their goals and feedback from previous people who have interacted with them.

Hub

The hub will be located in public places such as cafes and libraries.
It offers the rough sleeper the opportunity to understand the formats in which they can redeem their donations (for example 2 meals and 1 night in the shelter) and where to collect them from.
It also provides the opportunity to save a percentage of their donations and recharge the device from the mains.
