 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

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. 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.

About Verified Volunteers


Get it done

Once we've found a great match, we’ll arrange a time with you for them to complete your tasks.


Raise money for charity

There’s no need to pay expensive care agencies for simple tasks. We charge £10 an hour for our volunteer’s time. 80% of what you pay goes to charity, and we keep 20% to meet our costs.
