How to request help

We protect your privacy by only sharing your details with the people who need them, when they need them.


Tell us what you need

Request help using the orange button below - you can request help for yourself, or for someone else like a loved one at the other end of the country.


Wait for a volunteer to get in touch

As soon as a volunteer accepts your request we’ll let you know!


Receive the help you need

Volunteers offer their time and skills for free, but if your volunteer incurs any costs you need to pay back (like the cost of your groceries for example) they’ll let you know how you can pay them back.

About was created to help people volunteering to support their communities through the coronavirus pandemic. Since then, we’ve partnered with a number of organisations to make volunteering and finding volunteers simple, safe and effective for everyone.

We are a non-profit community interest company - founded by a healthcare analytics and digital company - that wanted to make a difference during the pandemic and beyond.
