Fantastic volunteering tool

My experience with onHand has been very fulfilling. I had been interested in volunteering for a while without really knowing where to start. The team and the app guide and facilitate the process so helpers can participate in the manner best suited to them. It makes me so proud to be able to help others and make a positive impact to the community.

It's been particularly enjoyable during these strange times to socialise with new people and engage in fresh topics of conversation. I think we have all dearly missed social interactions and onHand provides the space to reconnect with one another as well as offering the ability to brighten someone's day.

Great concept and app!

This app is a great tool to find out how you can help others; errands (drop off medication/ gardening/food shop), check-in, and phone calls.

During lockdown when the elderly are vulnerable and can’t risk physical company, it offers an alternative. It doesn’t take much time and makes a world of difference.

I use it quite a bit and like that I can continue to select ‘’missions’’; building relationships with users, while offering them the comfort of a familiar voice too.

Great way to help people

Great app, enables people to help people either by a phone call or doing small tasks. It’s always up to you how much your able to help. It is as great for me as the people I reach out to. Giving me an outlet when on lockdown and a connection to others. The staff are friendly and helpful just a text away or a phone call if you need them in a hurry. I really recommend this app to anyone who wants to help others. It’s flexible so as life gets busy you can still fit it in to your life. I find the people I reach out to look forward to my calls and I look forward to chatting to them.
