helping each other

Coordinate support for a carer

Our free app makes it easy to reach out and coordinate the help needed.

SUPPORT FOR CARERS

Use our free app to coordinate practical help

 Caring for others can be challenging, exhausting and relentless.

Often those in a caring role need extra help – but don’t always know how to reach out.

They are often overwhelmed by the situation they find themselves in and unable to coordinate the care they desperately need.

You can use our free app to support someone caring for others so they dont have to cope alone.

Set up a ‘support crew’ and coordinate family and friends to help out with meals, laundry, grocery pickup or social visits.

Create an account for someone you care about today.

HOW THE APP WORKS

The right help at the right time makes all the difference

How an App Captain helps

It’s common to feel overwhelmed during hardship. This is the reason why 80% of users enlist a family member or close friend to help set up the app.

Gather your Crew

Invite people to join your Crew. Think of friends, family and anyone who’s offered to help. You can use mobile numbers or phone contacts to send an SMS invite.

Identify help opportunities

If the person you’re assisting is overwhelmed, it’s likely they’ll struggle to think of what others should do to help. Our handy 1 minute questionnaire can make it a little easier. We’ll use the answers to build a list of common help requests, all saved in the Help List.

Shared calendar

The description, date and time for new tasks will be added to the shared calendar and published task list.

Create tasks

To request help, create a task. You can start with a suggestion from the Help List. Or create your own.

“Wednesday is my day off. So I’d be more than happy to walk the dog.”

“I’ll take Anna’s kids with mine to school. Easy since they’re so close by”

Many hands make light work

Using our innovative platform, thousands of everyday people have worked together to support one another. Building a community of kindness to provide sustainable support that meets the needs of those they care about.
