A new version of Multi Me, a secure social platform created for people with learning disabilities, has been launched this month.
The site is designed to help people with learning disabilities communicate through the use of multimedia and to enable them to become more in control of their lives through personal goal setting and the participation of their online support network.
The service includes applications designed to empower individuals in their self-determination, independence and self-advocacy and to build around them communities of co-operation, listening and support. Multi Me is a secure social platform that has a range of safeguarding and moderation features.
Multi Me the product is a concept originating from best-practice examples of Person Centred Planning (PCP), Circles of Support models and Multimedia Profiling (MMP) approaches with people with learning difficulties. It brings together the latest technology and social media approaches to create a unique and powerful solution to person centred working for use in education, health, social care and home based settings.
After extensive research since 2008 involving The Rix Centre (University of East London) in helping to develop an early software prototype, Multi-Me Ltd. was formed in 2010 by Charlie Levinson. The Multi Me Beta platform was launched in July 2011, Multi Me Vs.1 in July 2012 and Multi Me Vs.2 (current platform) in September 2015. Read more about our company profile here.
