About the app
This app is a dedicated platform for the NHS Staff to primarily place requests for Childcare. Additionally, they can ask for help to buy essential items for them when they are busy with their shifts, order ready meals for their team or as individuals or anything that they can ask for help about.
Usually, it is very difficult to find childcare help during night shifts. The NHS Staff can post requests on this app, where registered helpers in the area will come to their help.
And also, we have seen the public in general wanted to help the NHS in some way during the Covid-19 crisis, but they didn't where to look.
This app, has the potential to become a place of job opportunities too for childminders and nursery staff who have lost their jobs due to the pandemic.
Nurseries can also (if they are willing to) offer discounts to NHS Staff members to take their children.
This app is available on Google Play Store by the name 'Helpers' and on iOS Apple Store by the name 'Help the NHS'. We have invested four months so far on this project, just before the time the lock-down started, working alongside our day jobs in addition to the initial funds. We hope to raise the money to keep this great idea moving forward and become sustainable.
Our email address is firstname.lastname@example.org if you need details of anything or if you want to understand our initiative further.
We hope to make this a popular app within the community and be a support to our NHS.
