Working for Frog

 

Frog Systems Ltd has developed a new social media platform, focused on the wellbeing of UK citizens and communities by uniquely grouping people 'Geographically'.

 

All of the services, groups and activities needed to lead long, safe, happy and healthy lives are grouped in UK Local Authority areas.

 

Frog effectively builds upon the self-directed support model by connecting citizens with the local service providers and groups within a local authority area who provide the services and support that they require. It also provides a powerful promotional and communication channel for the many locally run support, activity and special interest groups and businesses that struggle to gain visibility within their communities.

Frog HQ is based at Frogquarters, 423 Paisley Road West, Glasgow G51 1PZ.

We are within 3 minutes’ walk of Cessnock underground and directly on bus routes.
