A platform for people with disability to find support workers, and an anxiety-reducing app tackling autism unemployment are among those in the running for a $1 million grant from Google.  

The 10 finalists of the 2018 Google Impact Challenge were revealed on Tuesday and are set to share in $5.5 million of grants funding.

The program supports not for profits and social enterprises using technology to tackle important social challenges, and the shortlisted finalists will attend an event in Sydney on 1 November to decide the winners.

The judging panel will be headlined by Australia’s chief scientist Dr Alan Finkel, who will hear pitches and select three winners to take home $1 million.
