How does it Work?

1 - We get a request for help

It might be directly with us on our phone line, email, or an online request from our website. We also handle referrals from Eastleigh Borough Council who are passing on requests they think we can help with.

2 - Our co-ordinators try to match the perfect volunteer

We'll ideally match someone within walking distance of your local neighbourhood, and get in touch to see if they can help.

3 - Our volunteer receives the information they need to complete the request

They get in touch with the volunteer to see if they can help.

4 - The volunteer makes contact with the person requesting help

They'll agree exactly what they're going to do and how it will be done.

5 - We'll request feedback

From both the volunteer, and the person seeking help to understand how it went and how we can improve.
