I can help out!
Your email & your address are kept private - your offer is placed on the map (randomly placed within 1km of you) so people can get in touch.
This site is to give people who can help and need help a place to link up. If you’ve put your hand up to help out, we'll email you with the details of anyone who'd like to take you up on your offer.
Businesses can use it to publicise any free help they are offering. We'd suggest putting your contact details in the 'message' box.
Community groups can use it to recruit volunteers. We'd also suggest you reply to offers already posted in your local area.
Keep in mind:
We cannot vet or endorse any of the requests for help we receive. Most of the people reading this are decent people, but it would be impossible for us to promise everybody is like that.
Use the same caution you would use when buying a second-hand car. Speak on the phone first, and if you ever feel that something isn't right, withdraw your offer and ask a trusted friend for advice.
When arranging a meeting or a delivery, you should inform a trusted friend or family member of the name, time and place you are meeting.
While we appreciate you have the right intentions, offers to mind children must only be made by people with provable police vetting - it should be up-to-date and available.
We will not post your exact address. We will place an anonymous icon representing you on a random street near your address.
Once the worst of the virus is over, we’ll delete this website and all its information. You’re free to withdraw your offer of help at any time.
