We’re starting to see the impact and improvement in the lives of everyday New Zealanders with help from our TSB Good Stuff! grants. Take a look below at some of the amazing progress our winners have made in bringing their ideas to life.
TSB Good Stuff winner Dean Brown has started trialling his mass casualty patient triaging application ‘Triage-Plus’. In December 2020 he even tested it out in a mass casualty simulation exercise, involving multiple emergency response agencies and the New Zealand Defence Force at Burnham Military Camp in Christchurch.. Dean’s involvement as a first responder paramedic during the Christchurch earthquakes and Al Noor Mosque shooting highlighted the need for a centralised system for triaging and tracking patients, that could be accessed by hospitals and all emergency services. Being a winner of a $30,000 TSB Good Stuff grant has enabled Triage-Plus to accelerate its development and testing programme.
A $30,000 TSB Good Stuff grant has helped BBM Motivation launch BBM Kai in October 2020, a six-week community educational workshop programme on how to cook healthy meals, which runs alongside its physical and mental wellbeing courses. Former professional boxer Dave Letele founded BBM Motivation in 2014 across the Auckland region to help people, particularly Māori and Pasifika, lose weight in a sustainable way. BBM Kai offers a safe environment that is non-judgmental and fosters a community feel good place for whānau to begin their journey to a healthier lifestyle.
Clearhead is an online artificial intelligence chatbot designed by NZ doctors, that empowers New Zealanders to find the help they need for their mental health. Clearhead has used its $30,000 TSB Good Stuff grant to expand its platform in December 2020 and introduce a service for Kiwis looking for guidance on how to support their loved ones who are struggling. This tool fills a massive need in our community and will provide people who visit the Clearhead website for this reason with the information, tools and regular advice they need to be an effective support person. Check out the Clearhead website here or download the app from the Apple or Google store.
