Frequently Asked Questions What is Pathway? Pathway is a database of currently over 30000 lifestyle-focused contacts covering a huge amount of topics relating to lifestyle, living, disability, society, sport and other major issues. Produced within Microsoft Outlook each contact contains a service or personal name, job title, organisational name, email address, web address, phone number, fax number and postal address and a contact image if available, as well as being categorised. The database has taken 20 years to produce and it one of the most comprehensive available to be launched properly and an expansion plan to grow to 50000 contacts by April 2012 including organisations in the UK, Europe and the World reflective on every possible lifestyle related topic.
What does the database cover? The database covers over 500 categories across Art, Communication, Education, Employment, Health, Leisure, Lifestyle, Society, Sport and Technology. This includes contact details for, with a normal degree of error, every UK and International Sportâ€™s government body, every UK Government body, every countryâ€™s government, every UK impairment organisation, every UK Prison, every UK media organisation (TV, Radio, Magazines and Newspapers), every major charitable organisation and so much more.
How will it help me? The database will provide users with instant access to a large amount of useful contact information, which will enable them to research many areas of interest and make direct contact with organisations in a manner web based searches could not do. As the database is in outlook and other formats, it is complimented by the functionality such software provides allowing you to take the power the information provides to the next level of effective empowerment.

Why it is different to Google? We live in a world where it is possible to find any and every kind of information we may want but it may take a bit of hunting. When it is possible to find any piece of information you can imagine, it is often our imagination which limits our access to things we would find useful if we knew about them. Pathway offers users direct access to organisations on almost every lifestyle topic, many of which people may not automatically believe existed like the British Toilet Association, going far beyond anyoneâ€™s imagination.
