Help Close By

Help Close By helps vulnerable and self-isolating people get fast, local support for the things they need.

With a network of volunteers who carry out various different tasks for people in need, we make sure no one is forgotten.

We are launching our first live tests of our technology in an area of Birmingham soon.
