Fortunately, his father could always count on a neighbour who regularly lent a helping hand with all kinds of daily tasks. This personal experience inspired François to create Helpper. What once started with a knock on a neighbour’s door has now grown into a peer-to-peer home service platform that connects thousands of neighbours.
Through Helpper’s online meeting platform the most vulnerable of our society, such as elderly and people with a disability or a chronic disease (“helppies”), are connected with a community of thoroughly screened neighbours (“helppers”) who gladly come to their aid for daily tasks. Helpper facilitates the creation of long-lasting and local collaborations between helppers and helppies by taking care of everything that is not the practical help itself, such as screening, insurances and payments.
