VinclesBCN is a service provided by the Barcelona City Council’s Area of Social Rights aimed at combatting loneliness in elderly people using technology to create and develop new social relationships. VinclesBCN has a smartphone app that members can use as a communications tool both with their family and friends but also with others in their VinclesBCN groups. Each user has two networks through the app, a personal network as well as a group network in which professional animators promote communication between members and inclusion in external activities.
