Cove comprises an app and wearable device which aims to reduce the social isolation and feelings of loneliness faced by young adult carers.

Cove app is a safe digital environment for young adult carers to meet, share experiences and advice.

Cove pebble is worn by carers during an arranged meet-up, to keep in touch with their care receiver at home and to give them the confidence to expand their social circle.

Cove enables carers to have access to like-minded individuals, providing new opportunity for friendships and for vital advice to be shared, improving carer’s mental health.
