 What Our Customers Say

It was so nice having a volunteer here with me to help around the house. I didn’t want some stranger coming to my house, so it was reassuring to know onHand had vetted my volunteer and we’d chatted beforehand
— Nora, North London

Say what you need

From replacing some lightbulbs or getting something from the shops, to helping with paperwork or just having a cup of tea and a chat. From help for an hour to all day and anything in-between - there’s no minimum time needed.

We find verified volunteers

From our database of hundreds near you. Please rest assured: we complete full DBS checks and have rigorously interviewed all of them. They are lovely.

Donate to charity

There’s no need to pay expensive care agencies for simple tasks. Our volunteers donate their time to you for free. We just ask that you make a donation after each task is complete. 80% goes to charity, and we keep 20% to met our costs.

I’ve only just moved to London, so I know how it feels to feel a bit isolated. I signed up to onHand because I hate the thought of anyone feeling alone.
