We believe that everyone shares a fundamental need to be understood by others, and language is our passport to social and professional success. This is what drives us to create smart, easy-to-use support technologies that enable people to read and write with confidence and independence, and to benefit from the English language.
The effective implementation of our assistive software solutions can increase productivity and inclusion through the empowerment of staff and patients by removing barriers to health literacy and digital accessibility.
Texthelp’s friendly literacy support software ‘Read & Write’ is used by 8.4 million users daily, helping ensure your staff reach their full potential within the workplace, while also helping you meet the requirements of the Patient Rights Act and achieve the ambitions of ‘Making it Easier’ in a Healthier Scotland. Texthelp’s software is already used extensively across NHS England to make online services and information more accessible to all.

As part of Diabetes UK, Diabetes Scotland’s aim is creating a world where diabetes can do no harm.
Diabetes is the fastest growing health crisis of our time, affecting more people than any other serious health condition in Scotland - more than dementia and cancer combined. It’s a serious condition which can lead to life-limiting complications if people are not supported to manage it well. There is currently no known cure for any type of diabetes.
Over 285,000 people in Scotland are currently living with diabetes. With the right treatment, knowledge and support people living with diabetes can lead a long, full and healthy life.

Started in 2006 by Scottish engineer David Irvine, MaidSafe is a small team, comprised of: thinkers, inventors, tinkerers, PHDs, engineers and designers. Although based in Troon, Scotland, we have drawn talents from many different cultures and countries, reflecting the users that we serve. Despite this variety, we all share a mission: a desire to provide security and privacy for everyone.
MaidSafe's aim is to provide privacy, security and freedom to everyone on the planet. This has been our unwavering ambition since we started on this journey in 2006, and it remains our driving force today.
Online data has become so insecure and data thefts so commonplace that our trust in companies securing our data is almost entirely eroded. An estimated 1.1 billion personal and sensitive records were stolen during 2014 with 8 incidents reported every single day. A new way of managing data is required, and MaidSafe combines several features that we believe provide a level of security not possible using existing methods.
Data security not only allows us to keep our credit card details safe, or our medical records secure, but only with security do we achieve privacy. Privacy is misunderstood by many. Too often people believe that demanding privacy is identical to protecting secrets, or hiding something that we shouldn’t be doing. Some would have us believe that, in some way, by not wanting to share everything with the world, we are involved in an unlawful act.
But in truth, this is not what privacy is about. Privacy is simply the ability to choose which personal thoughts, communications and actions you wish to share with others. Without privacy one's ability to communicate, explore, act or even think freely is restrained. Only in an environment of adequate privacy can creativity, new ideas and forms of expression flourish.
