During 2021, TAP’s free-to-use social thanking platform has continued to enable people to show their appreciation to the unsung heroes working in healthcare and social care. Over 25,000 keyworkers in over 100 locations in the UK can now be thanked by a TAP thanking community of over 2 million people; they can:
• Thank a keyworker privately
• Praise a keyworker organisation publicly
• Raise funds for a nominated healthcare charity
TAP’s core belief is that by enabling people to more easily thank keyworkers in healthcare and social care, we can end the culture of complaining and replace it with one of showing appreciation. Every message shared with a keyworker or organisation is checked to ensure only positive messages of thanks are seen.
During 2021, TAP launched a free App available from Google Play Store and Apple App Store (simply search for ‘TAP Thank and Praise’) to complement its www.thankandpraise.com platform – a large number of organisations benefited from TAP during 2021 including the United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust and the National Care Workers Association – all at zero cost.
