During the height of the coronavirus epidemic, we launched Next Door Helper to help those who are homebound and cannot run errands due to their vulnerability. With the pandemic gradually receding, we still have a need for this service, and several organizations have stepped forward to continue to run it
Next Door Helper is a simple service that helps match volunteers to people in their neighborhood who need help with errands. It works anywhere in the world where we can identify your location
You can register as someone who needs help, or someone who can help. We ask for your general location (city, zip/postcode) for matching purposes only. No personal information will be shown on this site, and once a pair is matched via email, the person in need can be more specific about their needs and location.
For everyone's safety and protection, there should be no personal contact and no exchange of money.
You need something? Just ask. You want to help? Just do it. We're counting on all of you trusting each other.
If you are trying to arrange help for a loved one far away, register on their behalf and enter their location, not yours.
If you don't feel comfortable having people you do not know assist you, even without contact, do not use this service and instead seek help with family & friends. This was designed to help those with no other options.
