Welcome to PocZero



PocZero exists to promote active wellbeing and lifelong learning. We work in communities to develop and connect local assets to evidence based outcomes.

Right now we are working in West Midlands, UK. Tomorrow we could be working where you live because, as we see it, we are all part of the same village.




Our Model

Ring of Confidence

Our model has been proven to work through the award-winning Birmingham Healthy Villages Partnership; pioneering new models of health and well-being through the use of innovative tools and data to give light to the stories of “real people, in real places, in real time”.

PocZero - We work in communties to generate local, sustainable opportunities for people to live better lives.

Creating value through maker spaces

Transfurniture are a social enterprise specializing in up-cycling. It employs people in recovery & offers them long term support to improve their life chances. Employment and accomodation are the two most difficult challenges for a person in recovery, and their work is showing positive impact when combined with community & mental health services.

Take Control Of Your Wellbeing

We were pleased to see the amount of people that engaged with the app to help themselves, but more importantly, to help others.

PocZero Academy


Programme Update

Birmingham's first health and wellbeing accelerator is now up and running. Following our productive series of #VillageTalk sessions, we have connected with over 80 local ventures. 15 were selected to participate in the first wave of the academy. The first intake of ventures have successfully graduated.


We continue to work with them as they embark upon the next chapter of their grassroots innovation story. They are collaborating to create and engage Rings Of Confidence across the region. At the same time we are connecting these inspirational community leaders to corporate, academic and statutory partners.
