How Requesting Assistance Works
When you request assistance, one of our administrators will review your request and match you to a volunteer. The volunteer will be given your contact details and will get in touch directly to assist you.
Please bear in mind that volunteers circumstances change. We do aim to make this volunteer service as safe as possible, but none of the volunteers are vetted beforehand and are just concerned members of the community willing to help. Take precautions to keep yourself safe and the volunteer at all times.
