I am a key worker and I need help:

Are you a healthcare worker or a key worker responsible for keeping our country running?

Our volunteers are available: 

  • To look after your children or collect them from school: on an emergency, last minute basis or for regular, ongoing care. 
  • (Please note that as the situation has become stricter, only registered childminders should remain open for vulnerable or keyworker children. It is also highly recommended that live-out Nannies only work for keyworker families. Until the situation improves, we strongly recommend all childcare providers to stick to the Government suggested social distancing guidelines.)
  • To help your children with school support via web-cam
  • To help you or elderly relatives with grocery shopping, pharmacy trips or other everyday tasks. 
  • (We strongly advise your volunteer to adhere to Government Social distancing guidelines, for example leaving groceries at the door)

I have some free time and want to help those in need:

If you're in good health, at low risk and want to be there for your community, there are a few ways you can help our key workers and those in self-isolation.

Offer, on a paid or volunteer basis:

  • Emergency, last-minute or regular childcare for key workers 
  • (Please note that as the situation has become stricter, only registered childminders should remain open for vulnerable or keyworker children. It is also highly recommended that live-out Nannies only work for keyworker families. Until the situation improves, we strongly recommend all childcare providers to stick to the Government suggested social distancing guidelines.)
  • Pick up groceries or pharmacy prescriptions for those self-isolating 
  • (We strongly advise your volunteer to adhere to Government Social distancing guidelines, for example leaving groceries at the door)

If you want to offer your services on a volunteer basis, simply tick the box “Willing to volunteer during the Covid-19 situation” during the Yoopies sign-up.

Our volunteers are available:

  • To pick up groceries or prescriptions from the pharmacy 
  • (We strongly advise your volunteer to adhere to Government Social distancing guidelines, for example leaving groceries at the door)
  • To keep you company over the phone or via web-cam

As a nation, we have been called to stay at home. However, for some key workers who are essential to the function of our country, including healthcare workers and supermarket staff, this is not an option.
