Vivify is a tech scale-up and partners with schools across the country to hire out their under-utilised facilities outside of school hours to enable them to generate much needed revenue that can be invested back into their facilities, teachers, and student experience.
Our social purpose remains at the heart of everything that we do. Our school partners are part of a movement to improve community wellbeing. Opening school facilities for communities to get together can improve mental and physical wellbeing, boost confidence, tackle loneliness and helps people feel more positive about life. Other benefits include providing a range of activities for people of all ages to get involved with to improve their skillset and discover new passions. These activities will also help improve inclusivity in communities by bringing people from different backgrounds together.
