About Us

Help From Home is a Cardiff, UK based volunteer driven initiative that promotes and encourages participation in easy, no commitment, on demand nonprofit run microvolunteering opportunities where a spare 10 seconds to 30 minutes is all that is needed to help out worthy causes.

As our name suggests, we primarily promote microvolunteering as home based, but over time have developed various other ongoing microvolunteering projects, where we have branched out into several other sectors, including senior citizens, employee volunteering, education establishments, and disabled volunteering.

We encompass several remits, these being:

to show people how they can utilize their spare moments more impactfully
to act as a clearing house of information related to the microvolunteering arena

Help From Home was set up in December, 2008 to address the problem at the time that the global voluntary sector was not promoting such microvolunteering actions. Whilst the Founder started this initiative by himself, he has picked up a few stragglers along the way to become the Help From Home Team that they are.

Help From Home is considered to have the largest known directory of current active non-skilled microvolunteering opportunities in the world.
