Cathartic
Cathartic

Cathartic allows people to share their stories with complete anonymity. It was created as a place for people to come and say whatever is on their mind. People can write about anything that is important to them – their whole life, personal trauma or events that have affected them in the past. The website has become a hub for people to use as a platform to start a journey of personal expression and growth.

Centrepoint’s Youth Homelessness Databank project is focusing on how data and technology can be used to better understand and address youth homelessness. Centrepoint joined Fuse to accelerate the development of technology to enable them to deliver multi-channel information and guidance to young people across the UK as part of the Youth Homelessness Databank project. Centrepoint discovered that one of the key challenges of any service is getting the information you need from service users quickly and unintrusively to understand how best to help. Centrebot – a text-based messaging service – enables people to contact Centrepoint for advice and guidance through SMS and web.
