We're a Tech for Good start-up that makes volunteering and receiving help simple

onHand is a marketplace app that allows people to give and get help, whenever and wherever they are. We’ve enabled “on-demand volunteering” and are now partnering with local authorities to help the UK fight back against COVID-19, with ~8500 app downloads and rising. Our focus is using the app to match volunteers with older adults who need help with basic tasks like shopping, medicine drop-offs and basic phone support. In doing so, we believe onHand can help address the growing care crisis facing our ageing population and maybe just leave the world a better place too.

We're a 2018 graduate of Facebook's LDN_LABs Accelerator programme (others include Olio and Goodgym) and, whilst the service has only been live since the start of last year, demand is far outpacing our expectations. Our App is live and performing robustly, but it is v1: given the demand we seeing, now is the right moment to invest in technology to reach more people and do more good.
