Help From Home

Description

Help From Home is a Cardiff, UK based volunteer driven, grassroots initiative that runs a free community service to promote and encourage participation in easy, no commitment, home based, microvolunteering opportunities where a spare 10 seconds to 30 minutes is all that is needed to help out worthy causes - from anywhere in the world, even in your own pyjamas!

As our name suggests, we primarily promote microvolunteering as home based, but over time have developed various other ongoing microvolunteering projects, including:

Help From School - encouraging people to change the world within their classroom as part of a citizenship course

Help From Work - encouraging people to volunteer during their lunchbreak, without leaving their office environment

Help From Seniors - encouraging senior citizens to volunteer without getting out of their armchair

Help From Holiday - encouraging people to think about responsible tourism by volunteering before, during or after their holiday

Help From Home was set up in December, 2008 to address the problem that the UK voluntary sector was not promoting such microvolunteering actions at the time. It was also set up to convey the notion that people could volunteer on the go, on demand and on their own terms - even in their pyjamas if they wanted to! It is now being promoted by the UK government, the main volunteering bodies in England and Wales, as well as over 50 UK high street volunteer centres, amongst many other prominent organisations.
