Connecting people who genuinely need help with volunteers - a new way to get help and help out
Our mission - to connect individuals who need help to do one-off tasks with individuals who want to volunteer their time to fix, clean, care, shop, transport, garden, sort. teach and more.
Registered charity and social enterprise
We first piloted in Brisbane during 2014 and then operated across South East Queensland.
The charity's Board of Directors are Aaron Anderson, Damian Brady, Sue Coulter, Bill Owens, Nicole Peterman (CEO), and Tim Whybourne. Dr Mel Hyde (who evaluated our pilot), Robert Wagner (website developer-adviser) and Daniel Nelson (financial analyst) are fabulous supporters of Help Me With It.
The joy expressed by our members about their experiences together was uplifting and makes the news that we are voluntarily winding up (from January 2018) hard to share, but our members showed us the service works and we are grateful for your patience, trust and support. It has been a long, challenging, yet satisfying journey for us. Sadly, the enterprise is not sustainable given the funding required to achieve scale and continue development. What a wonderful few years it has been.
