Welcome to Chanua
We work on a range of mental health, health and enterprise projects focusing on early stage and preventative services and support.
….services and products that foster healthy connections.
We do this by solving healthcare problems using human relationships, research, technology, games, psychology, data and good design, keeping people at the heart of everything we do. We believe that good relationships online and offline form the basis of healthy people throughout their lives.
Projects and Programmes
We create and develop a range of programmes and projects that fit with our impact objectives. Our programmes include Neuro Champions, Hacking Health North West, Teaching and Training and Entrepreneur in Residence. We deliver our work within the UK and are currently scaling to East Africa, Europe and the Caribbean.
Data and Research
Our Chanua data driven intelligence system ensures we have the foundations to measure the impact and collect data from our projects, programmes and products. From the grassroots projects, digital solutions to commercial events, we are collecting data to inform future practice and create an evidence base for our work.
We are currently developing our online shop that will house a range of our high quality products. Our products include our Neuro Transmit 3D Brain Game set and a range of educational resources. We are in the development phase of building a healthcare AR social game. You can see more about the progress here.
