Welcome To Project Vae
Project Vae CIC’s mission is to use virtual reality (VR) technology to take people within the care system on virtual experiences to help improve mental health & wellbeing.
Many of our daily conversations are centred around personal experience and this can become a barrier for people within the care system who (for various physical/mental health reasons) may not have many new or shared experiences in their daily lives. By striving to deliver new experiences for vulnerable and elderly people, we will help them to reconnect both with each other and the wider community.
Project Vae VR 360° videos are designed to give the viewer an immersive experience that makes them feel like they are on a real adventure.
Mental Health & Wellbeing
Our research has shown various mental health & wellbeing benefits of using VR technology combined with Project Vae video experiences.
Project Vae experiences give viewers new topics of conversation that they can share with family, friends and fellow residents.
“40% people living in care homes experience depression or poor mental health”
“Over 80% of older care home residents with mental health problems said they felt lonely in their care home”
