Social enterprise VR therapies

Founder, Rebecca Gill was a learning disability nurse, frustrated by how hard traditional therapies such as physiotherapy and hydrotherapy were getting to access for patients.

This motivated Rebecca to start-up the first social enterprise to provide VR therapies for kids with special needs and adults with disabilities. The goal of the business is to bring VR therapies to those who would benefit most but are least likely to access it.

Supportive environment

Northampton’s supportive environment has played a key role in the VR Therapies story. Rebecca attended a Start-Up Day run by the Business and IP Centre and it then that she started to believe in what she could achieve.
