VerseOne was founded in 2004 in order to make a difference to the lives of people that work within and are reliant on services from Social Housing organisations and the NHS.
During this period, we have provided hundreds of transformative Digital Solutions that have truly empower our customers—who have, in turn, been able to deliver exceptional services and freedom of choice to millions of their customers throughout the UK. Our long-lasting deep partnerships and working collaboratively with our customers have been key to VerseOne’s success.
As a further significant step in continuing to deliver on this commitment, we are delighted to announce the launch of our Communities and Charities Fund—set up directly to help and support good causes linked with those local communities that are supported by our customers.
This is hot on the heels of the VerseOne Innovation Fund launched earlier this year, designed to drive technology initiatives within the NHS and Social Housing sectors. We have already made our first award—to Cornwall Partnership NHS Trust’s Sowenna project to use Virtual Reality (VR) to augment traditional mental health treatments.
The Communities and Charities Fund is complementary to the Innovation Fund, however, it is not an investment initiative—rather a source of funding to our customers’ existing community support and charitable initiatives.
Alan Neilson, VerseOne’s Founder and Executive Chairman, explains:
“For some time now, and certainly since launching the Innovation Fund, we’ve also been thinking about making a direct difference to good causes and community projects within the NHS and Social Housing sectors—by setting up a Communities and Charities Fund that would make direct contributions towards these.
In outline, the Communities and Charities Fund will be drawn down on a first come first served basis—with any qualifying application being made on behalf of a community project, supported and sponsored by that particular Social Housing or NHS organisation.
VerseOne is delighted to share this initiative with and further support the organisations that do so much for their residents and service users.”
