Who we are

Elemental is an award winning Tech For Good company that is bridging the gap between health, housing, local government and the community via their portfolio of digital social prescribing products and consultancy services, designed to support the strategy and practice of self-care and independence and community resilience.

Former community development workers, Jennifer Neff and Leeann Monk, developed Elemental to halt health inequalities by connecting people, building communities and improving lives. They have played a major role in the uptake and adoption of the social prescribing movement that has seen communities gain better access to programmes, services and support in their local neighbourhoods that improve their mental and physical wellbeing.
