Our Story

Splinx emerged from our founder Vera’s personal experience working with
disabled people. In many cases, the public services offer is not enough
to help disabled people achieve their full potential, leading them
to seek support from private professionals. Her daily contact with these
families, made her realise that finding the professionals that match
the particular requirements of individuals with special needs can be a
time-consuming, costly, and overall frustrating process.

This need sparked an idea, a proposal for a solution to solve the issue
— create a free online platform that acts as a central hub, where
disabled people and their families can easily find the professionals that
suit their needs through automated search criteria.

Our Vision

Our vision is to create an online community where everyone can find the
help they need to achieve their full potential.
