Help around the house for older people.

Book a security-checked volunteer to help you, or an older relative or friend, with common household tasks. We have enthusiastic volunteers near you who want to help with cleaning and chores, cooking, technology, shopping and errands, and much more.

Donate to charity

onHand is only possible because of our 6 charity partners. As a way of saying thanks, we're asking that you make a donation after each task is complete - 80% goes to charity, and we keep 20% to pay the bills.
