New Idea

Social Purpose

Reduced Inequality

What is the problem you found?

How might we help immigrants to access social support and adapt to their new environment? 

Customer / Problem

New immigrants who are having a hard time adapting to the new environment they are in. These people are often isolated as everything around them may feel different to what they know. It would be great if there was a way to connect them to other immigrants who may have had similar experiences in the past.

What Is Your Solution?

New Minds is an app that connects new immigrants to established immigrants to seek support, advice and connection. The app is available in many languages, has a translation tool, a map page that helps users find key spots in their community, and an events page where regular meet-ups are posted.

Support Required
