Here at Laker, we are proud to be at the forefront of new technologies and emerging sectors, and we are always looking to be a leader of innovation. Our sister company social enterprise ‘Safe and Found Online’ is a shining example of this.
Established in 2018, Safe and Found Online is based on the ‘The Herbert Protocol’ which allows carers and people living with dementia to complete a form recording all vital details of their family member or friend, in the event of them going missing, it can then be handed to police to reduce time in gathering this information.
