What is Active Care?

Active Care is a new movement to give people the keys to health and wellbeing, to better enable them to get active about their own care. It’s about getting better outcomes for every person every time.

Sonder is the first Active Care technology company

We help organisations improve the wellbeing of their people, so they perform at their best. We do this by combining modern technology with a team of healthcare experts. At the touch of a button, your people have 24/7 access to self-help, or they can live chat with a team of safety, medical, and mental health professionals. If in-person support is needed, we act quickly to get someone onsite quickly for time-sensitive scenarios.

Our platform provides robust, anonymised, data-driven insights which give leaders the knowledge they need to act on tomorrow’s wellbeing challenges today.
