Our app has been built with dogs and walkers in mind.
The countdown to a new adventure begins…
There are over 7.9 million people living alone in the UK, many of whom have struggled throughout this global pandemic. Our aim is to support everyone wherever possible and help them feel themselves again. We hope our app will empower people to get outside and take steps to improve their lives through exercise and socialising.
There are also over 10 million dog owners, each of whom owns a different breed. As you are probably aware, there are thousands of dog groups situated on other social media platforms, many of which are isolated to their breed. We want to take these dog groups and turn them into one massive community, where all dogs and walkers are welcome.
Swalky is free to use and open to everyone. Our vision is to bring together a wide network of users, from vast walks of life. This will not only help build social skills and respect for our planet, but it will also help promote mental health and wellbeing. We focus on the passion for dogs and walking, rather than individual characteristics. There is estimated to be 14.1 million people in the UK with a recognised disability (Scope, UK) and we are proud to be one of the only social media platforms to actively incorporate disabilities into our application.
Users are encouraged to walk locally wherever possible and remain responsible for all environmental impact. The UK plans to be carbon neutral by 2050 and one of the great benefits of walking is that it causes very little, if any carbon footprint at all. Our vision is to remain as carbon neutral as possible and improve the areas that we venture to. We want to keep communities growing and people walking for the long haul and an important part of that is keeping environments clean.
10% of all monthly earnings will be distributed to charities that are in line with our values. Users will have the option to vote for their charities of choice via our social media.
