Currently helping families and staff in the following organisations...

How does Little Journey work?

Prepare patients for their procedure, virtually!

  • Interactive, virtual reality tours psychologically prepare users for the environments they will visit, who they will meet and what will happen at each stage of their journey.
  • Games help to reinforce key learning points from the virtual tour.
  • Child-narrated meditative coping exercises and breathing techniques that they can practise at home ready for hospital.

Empowering parents through knowledge and organisation

  • Drip feeding information when it’s needed through short articles and FAQs
  • Interactive, virtual checklists of what to bring on the day of their visit
  • Key hospital details and contact numbers
  • Fasting guidelines tailored to each organisation
  • Nudges and notifications sent to the users device.

Keep your information up to date through live content management

  • All Little Journey content is tailored to your organisations, including, Virtual Reality images, fasting guidelines, contact information and procedure specific information articles.
