Mother of disabled child reaches out to others with free online support

Nicola Murgatroyd, mother of a disabled child and founder of MyLiferaft, the High Wycombe-based health and social care technology company, has introduced access to an innovative online system that provides comprehensive support for carers and the cared-for in the home.

Based on her personal experience as a carer, the MyLiferaft platform is designed for those with a disability or long-term medical conditions, and helps to cope with the management of critical information that carers need to know, appointments and paperwork. “Using the platform joins everything up in one easy to access place, avoiding constant repetition and allows for a data trail to help ensure that vital health and care information isn’t lost” said Nicola.

“MyLiferaft is clever in that it collates information to create a hospital passport and an ‘all about me’ sheet of information, enabling carers to know the likes and dislikes of the cared-for. There is also a journal to record feelings and goals and measure achievements”.

Using MyLiferaft lets you:

  • Store your health and care information (and then control who sees it)
  • Create your hospital passport (information for hospital staff that isn’t all about illness)
  • Keep track and be reminded of appointments and assessments
  • Share your care information with those who support you
  • Hear about new technology solutions and how they can help you

MyLiferaft is a 24/7 secure online solution that is available 365 days of the year that offers both a Free account and a Premium account with additional functionality. To find out more about our 2 accounts please visit
